Foot Predictions shows the Europa League clash on Thursday between Bayer Leverkusen and Young Boys, including hunches, preview and possible lineups.
Bayer Leverkusen to assume Young boys in the second leg of the tie for the last 32 rounds of the Europa League, with the Germans trying to overcome last week’s 4-3 handicap.
Young Boys won 3-0 at half-time in a head-to-head clash, with Leverkusen’s second-half rematch making them marginal favorites for Thursday’s qualifying.
Leverkusen did not appear to have left the plane during the first half in Switzerland, last Thursday, with Christian Fassnacht, Theoson Siebatcheu and Elia Meschak Blitzing Young Boys ahead.
However, while Peter BoszYour side can be suspiciously defensively, attacking is a big force for them. Ironically, Leverkusen played with reduced pressure and greater freedom in pursuing the game, with a Patrik Schick double and Moussa Diaby tie procedure before Siebatcheu restored Young Boys’ lead with just one minute left from normal time.
Perhaps understandably after an exhausting case and a quick turnaround, Leverkusen appeared to be empty during the 1-1 draw in Augsburg on Sunday, with Edmond Tapsoba saving a point in the injury period.
However, with the gap in the Champions League qualifying positions in the Bundesliga now extended to five points, winning the Europa League may very well be your best chance of qualifying for Europe’s elite competition next season, reversing the defeat. in Switzerland last week even more important.
The Young Boys will certainly have a stop on Thursday, with the 2-0 win over Servette over the weekend extending the Swiss team’s winning streak to seven matches in all competitions and their lead at the top of the Swiss table to impressive 18 points after just 21 matches.
Like Leverkusen, Gerardo SeoaneThe Leverkusen team is a serious offensive force, as illustrated by the fact that they tied four against Leverkusen, even without their top scorer suspended. Jean-Pierre Nsame, who got it right again over the weekend.
However, Seibatcheu and Elia increased admirably with three goals scored in the first leg, so Seoane hopes they will be able to fill the spot again on Thursday.
