09/05: Daily Predictions: Bayern Leverkusen vs Roma

Betting Predictions

Before their return match against Roma on Thursday, Bayer Leverkusen had already qualified for the Europa League final.

Xabi Alonso is in charge of an incredible undefeated season and has already guided the team to their first Bundesliga championship. They are only 90 minutes away from scheduling a trip to Dublin for the final later this month after winning the first leg of the semi-final 2-0 away at Roma last week.

The giants from Italy obviously made it to the final last year, but they still have a long way to go.

Head-to-Head

Following Bayer Leverkusen’s triumph in Rome last week, the head-to-head record now stands at two victories apiece and three draws. Roma’s 1-0 aggregate victory in last year’s Europa League semifinal was secured with a 0-0 draw at the Bay Arena.

When Bayer last participated in a European cup final, it was the 2002 Champions League final, which they lost to Real Madrid.

Team News

Bayer Leverkusen have a fantastic season. They won their first Bundesliga title, while Xabi Alonso’s team have an excellent chance also to progress to the Europa League final after they won 2-0 against Roma in the first leg. Bayer Leverkusen had already won the Bundesliga title, but they still found motivation for the weekend to trash Eintracht Frankfurt 5-1. Alonso’s team executed the game plan perfectly, scored on almost every solid goal-scoring chance, and secured another win that will raise confidence additionally ahead of the game against AS Roma.

After Serie A got additional Champions League place, AS Roma’s chances to play in the elite European competition next season significantly increased. However, AS Roma will need almost perfect last three rounds to sneak into the top five and get the desired spot. AS Roma won only one of the last five matches. In the previous game, they played 1-1 at home against Juventus.

Probable Line-Up

Bayer Leverkusen XI:

Hradecky; Stanisic, Tah, Tapsoba; Frimpong, Xhaka, Palacios, Grimaldo; Wirtz, Adli; Boniface

Roma XI:

Svilar; Karsdrop, Mancini, Ndicka, Spinazzola; Cristante, Paredes, Pellegrini; Dybala, Lukaku, El Shaarawy

Verdict

Tip: Leverkusen to Win

Reason

AS Roma was defeated 2-0 by Bayer Leverkusen in the first leg. In that match, they demonstrated that the current gap between the two teams is too great. Despite playing on the road, Bayer had a significantly higher XG and 11 more shots on goal, so it is understandable that they were able to win again. While Bayer is getting better with every game, Roma is going through a slump. Roma have just one win from their last five in all competitions and they will need to find another gear or two if they are to derail the Bayer Leverkusen train.

Tip: Over 2.5 Goals

Reason

What we can expect at the BayArena is plenty of goals. The Leverkusen faithful have seen 91 goals scored in their 24 competitive home games this season and 20 of them have featured at least three goals, including eight of their last ten, so backing over 2.5 goals looks appealing.

Tip: Writz to Score

Reason

After scoring for Bayer Leverkusen in the first leg, Florian Wirtz is now only one goal shy of reaching 20 for the season.  Wirtz was given a break over the weekend despite having scored eighteen goals and provided fifteen assists across all competitions this season. In his previous seven games for the Germans, he had already scored seven goals.
