Krasnodar vs Bayer Leverkusen Match Preview
Krasnodar host Bayer Leverkusen for their Europa League clash having picked up their team spirits with friendly wins over New England (2-0), Malmo (2-0), and Lokomotiv Moscow (1-0) early in February, now hoping they can build on such a streak and earn an advantage ahead of the trip to Germany.
Bulls have proven their character in front of the home fans time and time again, which should have Murad Musaev’s men very motivated to impress once again – shocking the Bundesliga rivals as they did with Sevilla (2-1), Standard Liege (2-1), and Akhisarspor (2-1) this term already.
Bayer Leverkusen have been more unpredictable and while they’ve beaten Wolfsburg (0-3) and Bayern Munich (3-1) in two exciting clashes beforehand, the last week’s DFB Pokal loss to Heidenheim (2-1) gives out a different picture altogether – as they took the lead at Voith Arena but saw the rivals complete a comeback in the second half.
Die Werkself will want to bounce back but have a very busy schedule on their hands, as they take on a trip to Russia just days after the trip to Mainz, desperate to prove their worth on the road after seeing two losses in last four trips across competitions.
We will now back Krasnodar to hold off the tough visitors and prove their great character at home ground once again, sticking with an enticing Double Chance – Home win or Draw at 7/10 with Betway. They have seen just one loss in 15 outings since August and we do see them building on it.
However, it will be no easy task and Bulls could have to outgun the rivals to secure such a success, as we now also back a Yes on Both teams to score at 7/10 with Sportingbet. We have seen Leverkusen regularly enjoy such clashes on the road and this reinforces our belief we should be in for a very exciting occasion.
