Real Betis to open the scoring
While most bookies have given Leverkusen an edge in this fixture, we don’t think they have the scoring form to go ahead. Leverkusen has only seemed to get worse since the 1-1 draw in the first leg encounter with Real Betis. The hosts haven’t won in three games since then. On the flip side, Real Betis has shown real intent of scoring goals. The visitors scored seven goals in the last three games while Leverkusen scored three goals in as many games, two of which were losses. The visitors bagged 2W and 1L in the last three matches since they drew 1-1 with Leverkusen.
Let’s say our second pick is premised on the fact that Leverkusen will have the German fans behind them at the BayArena. And with the hosts currently topping Group G on goal difference, we think they will put in a shift to score in this fixture. Real Betis is our favourite to score first so goals on both sides are a good betting market that comes with a great price on Ladbrokes.
Our tipsters are also backing a high scoreline of at least three goals in this fixture. The hosts failed to win in their last five games. Moreover, they failed to keep a clean sheet within that duration. On the other hand, Real Betis kept only one clean sheet in their last five matches during losing only once within that duration.
Match Preview: Leverkusen and Real Betis Fight for the Knockout Spot
Leverkusen and Real Betis are locked in a tight race for the knockout spot. With both teams sharing points, the defence could be a deciding factor in this fixture. These teams scored a goal each in the first meeting and will look to do even better in this game. Leverkusen plays their second Europa League game at home but is wary of a poor scoring form on home soil. Only two goals of the seven were scored at the BayArena, so the second Europa League at home presents the German chance with a real chance of widening the gap at the top. On the flip side, a trip to Germany won’t be a walkover for Betis. However, the visitors can still stay in the race for direct placement in the knockout spot if the visitors can grab another point in this fixture.
