Leverkusen to win

Leverkusen lost to Atlanta at the Gewiss Stadium by a 3:2 scoreline last week; they have not done too well away from home recently. Five of Leverkusen’s last six losses were away from home; on the other hand, they’ve been really solid at home, especially recently. Leverkusen have won seven of their last 10 home games across all competitions; they’ve drawn two of those seven games, losing just once. It’s fair to point out that Atalanta have won just one of their last four road games; they drew one and lost two of those four games. With this in mind, we’re leaning towards Leverkusen for the win.

Both teams to score

Bayer Leverkusen have not been very good defensively; they kept just one clean sheet in their last 17 games across all competitions. Conversely, Leverkusen have been very consistent when it comes to finding the back of the net; as they’ve done so in 12 of their last 13 games. Both teams scored in 11 of Leverkusen’s last 13 games in all competitions. In the same vein, Atalanta have scored their fair share of goals; they scored 16 goals in their last 10 games. It’s noteworthy that the reverse fixture was a five-goal thriller, with both teams scoring at least two goals each; for this reason, we believe that both teams will score.

Goals will pour

Our final prediction for this match will be on the over/under goals market. We should start by pointing out that these teams scored five goals between them in the first leg. Also, Leverkusen’s games have mostly been high-scoring; 11 of their last 13 games went above the 2.5 goal line. Considering Atalanta scored 16 goals in their last 10 games, we should expect some goals in this game.

Leverkusen vs Atalanta: Team News


Leverkusen have not enjoyed a good run of form recently; they are coming off back-to-back losses, and have no wins in their last three games. Gerardo Seoane’s men will head into this game on the back of a 3:2 first leg loss; it’ll be interesting to see if they’ll overturn that deficit with Patrik Schick leading the attack.


Atalanta have had a fairly decent run in recent games; they’ve lost just one of their last five games, with three wins and a draw. Atalanta will set their sights on a quarterfinal spot as they face Bayer Leverkusen; it’s worth keeping an eye on Duvan Zapata.
