Bayer Leverkusen vs Krasnodar Match Preview
Bayer Leverkusen held Krasnodar to a goalless draw in the first leg last week and now host the Russian rivals looking to capitalize on it, where they boast a much more confident spell of form and base their success across competitions on performances at BayArena.
Die Werkself have thus been denied a win in third of six trips across competitions but we’ve seen more from them at home, where they bagged a confident 2-0 win over Fortuna Dusseldorf over the weekend and connected their seventh win in eight outings – with just a 0-1 loss to Borussia Monchengladbach seen in the process.
Krasnodar haven’t returned to their Premier League campaign yet and this could prove costly, despite having picked up their form through friendlies over the break. They’ve struggled to score goals on the regular away from home, though, and this will be more worrying.
Bulls only narrwoly finished 2nd in Group J as they suffered a comfortable 3-0 loss at Sevilla on the final day of the Group Stage, which feels just as worrying for Murad Musaev. His men haven’t managed an advantage and now have much to prove in Germany.
We don’t see them making it happen despite a tough challenge looming and with that in mind, we’re now backing Bayer Leverkusen to make their way to the next round with a Home win to Nil – which comes at an eye-catching 6/4 with bet365.
Still, we feel Krasnodar will be no easy nut to crack on the day either and we’ll thus also back a low-scoring contest with Under 2.5 Goals FT at 5/4 with Paddy Power. We’ve seen such occasions in eight of Krasnodar’s last ten outings as well as six of Leverkusen’s ten home outings, which feels like further evidence for such a bet.
