Leverkusen VS Zürich


Preview
Bayer Leverkusen and Zürich face at BayArena, in a match for this stage of the UEFA Europa League (Group Stage). The home advantage may play an important role in this match , since Bayer Leverkusen presents significant differences between home and away results.

Analysis of Bayer Leverkusen

The home team is currently in the 2nd position, with 6 points won, after 2 wins and 1 loss. In the penultimate round, they have won a home match against AEK Larnaca by (4‑2). In the last round, they have lost an away match against Zürich by (3‑2). This is a team that, oddly enough, has had better results in away matches than at home, since in the last 30 matches they register 8 wins, 3 draws and 4 losses in away matches; against 7 wins, 2 draws and 6 losses at their stadium. In their last match, for the Bundesliga, they got a home loss against Hoffenheim by (1‑4). In the last 10 home matches Bayer Leverkusen has won 4, tied 1 and lost 5. Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 7 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 9 of the last 10 matches. In 15 matches, they have conceded the first goal 6 times, but have turned the score around in 2.

Bayer Leverkusen has won the Europa League once throughout its history, in the 1987/88 season, and has been runner-up of the Champions League and runner-up of the Bundesliga (German League) five times. The team has been making a good campaign in the Europa League in the current season, having won six of the nine points it played so far, being in second place in Group A, three points behind the leader Zurich. Although Bayer Leverkusen has been presenting good performances in the home matches, the team scored goals in all the last eight games it played at its stadium, counting several competitions. We believe that in this match Bayer Leverkusen will be able to score again and will come out victorious.

Confirmed Lineup: L. Hradecky, T. Jedvaj, M. Weiser, A. Dragović, Wendell, C. Aránguiz, D. Kohr, J. Baumgartlinger, L. Alario, J. Brandt, L. Bailey.
Coach: H. Herrlich.

Analysis of Zürich

The away team is currently in the 1st position, with 9 points won, after 3 wins. In the penultimate round, they have won a home match agaisnt Ludogorets by (1‑0). In the last round, they have won a home match against Bayer Leverkusen by (3‑2). This is a team that usually maintains its competitive level in home and away matches, since in the last 30 matches they register 8 wins, 2 draws and 5 losses in away matches, with 31 goals scored and 22 conceded; against 8 wins, 5 draws and 2 losses at their stadium, with 26 goals scored and 17 conceded. In their last match, for the Super League, they got an away win against Luzern by (2‑5). In the last 10 away matches Zürich has won 6, tied 1 and lost 3. Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 7 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 9 of the last 10 matches.

FC Zurich is among the top teams in Swiss football, having won the Swiss Super League three times but never managed to win the Europa or the Champions League. The team has made a good campaign in the Europa League in the current season, having won all the three games it played so far in the group stage, thus leading the Group A, with three points ahead of second placed. In the last five games that Zurich played away from home, counting only the national championship, in all of them the team suffered goals. We believe that in this match Zurich will concede goals again and may add its first loss by playing against a strong opponent.

Confirmed Lineup: Y. Brecher, A. Nef, A. Maxsø, U. Bangura, K. Rüegg, A. Marchesano, S. Khelifi, B. Kololli, H. Kryeziu, T. Domgjoni, S. Odey.
Coach: L. Magnin.

Betting suggestion:

In this confrontation between Bayer Leverkusen and FC Zurich, we believe the home team will win, as it has been making a great campaign in the Europa League as it added a 4-2 victory in the only game it played at home for the competition, while Zurich, although undefeated in the Europa League, has more difficulty to play away from home.
