Bayer Leverkusen vs AS Roma – Prediction, and Match Preview

Bayer Leverkusen vs AS Roma – After playing Stuttgart to a 1-1 draw in the first game of the Bundesliga, Bayer Leverkusen gets ready for this contest.

In that game, Bayer Leverkusen controlled 48% of the possession and attempted 12 total goals, scoring only one of them. Exequiel Palacios scored the goal for Bayer Leverkusen in the 70th second.

Stuttgart had nine total attempts on goal, but only one of them were successful. Stuttgart scored thanks to Serhou Guirassy (57′).

In their last six games, Xabi Alonso’s Bayer Leverkusen have scored eight goals overall. In that same period, five goals have been scored against them.

Both Roma and Bologna were held scoreless in their most recent matchup against one another in Serie A. The result was a draw for both teams.

Roma had 28% of the game’s possession and seven total shots on goal, none of which was on goal. Bologna made 12 total attempts, three on goal with none of them being on target at the other end.

There have been relatively few goals scored between Roma and the opposition in the past five of Roma’s six games.

The total average of goals scored over that stretch was a pitiful 1.83, with i Giallorossi scoring an average of 0.67. We’ll just have to wait and see whether or not this tendency continues in the upcoming game.

Bayer Leverkusen vs AS Roma – Betting Analysis

Due to the perfectly healthy group that is available to choose from, Bayer Leverkusen manager Xabi Alonso will be delighted not to have any fitness problems to speak about prior to this match.

With Lukas Hradecky, Edmond Tapsoba, Jonathan Tah, Piero Hincapié, Jeremie Frimpong, Kerem Demirbay, Exequiel Palacios, Mitchel Bakker, Moussa Diaby, Sardar Azmoun, and Amine Adli, it appears that Leverkusen will likely play the 3-4-3 formation for the match.

José Mourinho, the manager of Roma, must select a team with few options. There are some players that are not eligible for selection, including Rick Karsdorp (knee surgery), Stephan El Shaarawy (unknown injury), Paulo Dybala (unknown ailment), Diego Llorente (biceps femoris muscle injury), and Marash Kumbulla (cruciate ligament injury).

Rui Patricio, Gianluca Mancini, Chris Smalling, Bryan Cristante, Leonardo Spinazzola, Mady Camara, Nemanja Matic, Nicola Zalewski, Lorenzo Pellegrini, Georginio Wijnaldum, and Tammy Abraham, in our opinion, might be sent out along with Lorenzo Pellegrini and a 3-4-2-1 formation.

Roma has the potential to surprise this Bayer Leverkusen team, but that probably won’t be enough to prevent a defeat.

What are the best odds for the game?

Looking at what the bookmakers’ view is of this game in the full-time result market, the win for Bayer Leverkusen is available for 2.07, a bet on the game finishing all-square is 3.42 and betting on the win for Roma gets you 3.82. They’re the best market prices offered at this very moment.
