Bayer copes well with the task of reaching the playoffs of the Europa League and, after four rounds, deservedly leads in Group G. The Pharmacists looked stronger than all their opponents and lost points only once, having an away draw with Betis (1:1).
Gerardo Seoane’s team has a solid defence, conceding only two goals, and looks balanced in all lines. In the previous match, Leverkusen proved that the draw in Seville was just a coincidence, defeating the Spaniards at home (4:0). Karim Demirbay was injured in the last round of the Bundesliga and is unlikely to be able to help his partners in the game with the Scots.

Ange Postecoglou’s guys started very unconvincingly, losing two debut matches, but then were able to adjust to the right mood and beat Ferencvaros twice (2:0 and 3:2).
The Celts have improved their position in the championship and are now only four points behind the Rangers, being in second place. There are enough injuries in the Scottish squad, so they will arrive in Leverkusen with a weakened roster.

Bayer has destroyed the Celts on their field in the second round and looks like a clear favourite of his quartet. The Pharmacists won the last match of the domestic championship and, in a good mood, will try to make it to the playoffs of the Europa League in front of home stands, which they can do. Celtic did not look competitive in the home match, and in the opponent’s field, in our opinion, the guests have almost no chance to keep such a motivated opponent. We believe that the advantage will be on the side of the Pharmacists, they will be able to win a convincing victory, and the guests will not be able to prevent them.
Our forecast is the handicap (-1) on Bayer Leverkusen. Celtic, of course, will not give three points without a fight and will resist at first, hoping to earn points in Leverkusen and turn the match of the sixth round not just a formality for themselves.
The guests have a chance to score a goal, but no more. We believe that the main threat will come from the forwards of the home team. Bayer is very aggressive in attack at the home pitch, and there is every reason to believe that the match will be attacking and productive. So, our second bet will be – a total of more than three goals with the odds of 1.90. To win more with huge bonuses, higher odds, and without risks – visit our betting sites rankings page.
