Bayer Leverkusen vs AS Roma Match Preview And Prediction

Bayer Leverkusen vs AS RomaIn the second leg of their UEFA Europa League semifinal match against Roma, which takes place on Thursday night at BayArena, Bayer Leverkusen will try to seal the deal. Seven days ago, in the capital of Italy, the Germans dominated the encounter for extended periods of time. Can the Giallorossi bounce back and hand their opponents their first loss of the year?

This Europa League season, Bayer Leverkusen has won all five of their home matches, scoring 19 goals in the process. In six consecutive games in all competitions, Roma gave up at least one goal. In four of Leverkusen’s previous five games in all competitions, both teams were on target.

Last week, Bayer Leverkusen defeated their Italian rivals for the first time in ten meetings with to goals from Robert Andrich and Florian Wirtz. The Werkself validated it on Sunday afternoon, crushing Eintracht Frankfurt 5-1 away. In all competitions, it was the team’s 48th straight game without a loss this season.

On Sunday, Roma’s losing streak grew to three games. They and Juventus drew 1-1 in Stadio Olimpico, sharing the spoils. The Romans will have a mountain to climb to fend off Atalanta’s advances in the race for a top five Serie A finish, as they are still four points behind Bologna in fourth position.

Bayer Leverkusen vs AS Roma: Betting Analysis

Bayer Leverkusen’s 2-0 triumph at Stadio Olimpico last week against Roma put a stop to their five-game losing streak. Last season, at this same point in the UEFA Europa League, these two teams faced off. On that occasion, Roma under Jose Mourinho won 1-0 overall.

In the three previous head-to-head matches between these rivals, we did not witness three goals or more. It was seven days ago on Italian soil, and Bayer Leverkusen was the team on top. This Thursday, we can only hope that they will replicate such a show on their own ground.

With this squad, Xabi Alonso is working miracles. The Werkself’s unbeaten record in all competitions thus far in the 2023–2024 season speaks for itself. In their twelve Europa League games this season, Bayer Leverkusen had eight victories and four ties. They have scored up to 19 goals in their five home games thus far in the campaign.

Out of the last five games in all competitions, Roma have only one victory. At 2.37 odds, we’ll choose Leverkusen to lead at halftime and win the game in the end. At odds of 1.72, the Over 2.5 goals selection is definitely worth considering.

This Europa League season, Bayer Leverkusen has at least three goals in four or five of their home games. In the six games that followed, Roma has not let their net go empty in any competition. Three of the previous five games they have played have seen them give up two or more goals.

When play gets underway, we’re picking Bayer Leverkusen to win comfortably.
