EUROPA LEAGUE TOP PLAY #3
Slavia Prague vs. Bayer Leverkusen
Thursday, October 29, 2020 at 4:00 pm
Bayer Leverkusen started the Bundesliga season on a rough note, starting with three consecutive draws as they were trying to adapt to life without Kai Havertz or Kevin Volland who departed for Chelsea and Monaco respectively in the offseason. However, Bayer are still undefeated in the Bundesliga with back-to-back wins and started their Europa League campaign with a dominant 6-2 thrashing of Nice last time out, a Nice side that’s top 5 in Ligue 1 at the moment. Slavia Prague on the other hand lost 3-1 to Hapoel Be’er Sheva, as Slavia Prague were just no match for the Israeli outfit in game one. I think that Leverkusen is the team to beat in this group and I expect them to show why here, so I’ll side with Leverkusen -1.5 as my premium pick for this game.
