Bayer Leverkusen vs Porto Match Preview
Bayer Leverkusen host Porto for their Europa League clash in a good mood after knocking Stuttgart (2-1) out of DFB Pokal in early February and building on the success with Bundesliga wins over in-form Borussia Dortmund (4-3) and Union Berlin (2-3) primarily thanks to great performances in the final third.
Indeed, Die Werkself have seen goals coming from all directions as Lucas Alario, Kevin Volland, Leon Bailey, Lars Bender, Kai Havertz, Moussa Diaby, and Karim Bellarabi all made it on the scoresheet over the past two weeks. Peter Bosz will now want more of the same and we feel his men will be very tough to hold off once again.
Porto boast great recent records of their own, though, and will surely be motivated to keep it up after catching up with Benfica at the top of the Primeira Liga table. They bagged 12 points in four league outings including a 3-2 win over the pace-setters, which will be a great boost to their confidence.
Dragoes made their way to Taca de Portugal Final over Academico Viseu (4-1 on aggregate) along the way and while they have been conceding goals on the regular, we’ll surely see them employing an attacking approach at BayArena as well – which promises an exciting contest on Thursday evening just as much.
We feel Bayer Leverkusen should have what it takes to outgun them and secure an advantage ahead of the trip to Estadio Do Dragao, as we go for a Home win at 19/20 with William Hill as the best approach to the fixture at this point.
We have seen both sides enjoying high-scoring games lately and we’ll now go for another such occasion despite high stakes involved. We’re backing Over 2.5 Goals FT at 10/11 with bet365, which would be tenth such occasion in 12 outings for both sides.
