Leverkusen and Roma First Leg

Leverkusen aod Roma already have played one leg of this Europa League match and it was Leverkusen that was able to secure the 2-0 victory. Florian Wirtz scored in the 28th minute while Robert Andrich scored another goal in the 78th minute. 

Leverkusen Betting Preview

Leverkusen is in a great position and I would expect they are going to take a defensive shape here. On Sunday, they faced off against Eintarcht Frankfurt and they were able to secure the 5-1 victory. Grant Xhaka opened up the scoring in the 12th minute and they never looked back on the way to the victory. They had only 44 percent of the possession but they had seven shots on goal. Leverkusen is pretty healthy heading into this game and they should have confidence. Jonathan Tah, Jeremie Frimpong, and Alex Grimaldo are all healthy heading into this game and they all should move back into the starting lineup in this game. 

Roma Betting Preview

Roma has their backs against the wall and they are going to need to push numbers forward here. On Sunday, Roma faced off against Juventus and they played to a 1-1 draw. Romelu Lukaku scored in the 15th minute but the defense gave up a goal 16 minutes later and that led to the 1-1 draw. Paulo Dybala and Stephan El Shaarawy are healthy and they are going to need to have a big impact on this game. Zeki Celik was suspended for the last game but he’s expected to be back and play in this game. Chris Smalling could move into the starting lineup in this game. 

Leverkusen vs Roma Prediction

Leverkusen is going to take the defensive shape here and their defense is going to step up here. Roma’s offense failed to score any goals against Leverkusen in the first leg and it’s going to be much of the same here. Leverkusen and Roma are both going to struggle to get the offense going here, and that will be the difference here as this game is going to stay under the total. Back the under to cash here.
