  • DRAW: 17/4 (5.25) – 19%

Correct Score: 3-0

  • Bayer Leverkusen have not lost a single game this season in all competitions, making it almost impossible to argue Molde’s case.

Over 2.5 Goals

  • Molde also have a healthy goals-scored record of 11 netted, although they have let in seven too.

Bayer Leverkusen vs Molde Lineups

Bayer Leverkusen

Much of Leverkusen's sensational form this season has been down to their lack of injuries, and only Florian Wirtz and Adam Hlozek sit out of this game. There, however, will likely be a few changes to the usual starting XI, given how there is nothing riding on this game for Alonso.

Predicted Lineup: Kovar (GK), Stanisic, Tah, Tapsoba, Frimpong, Palacios, Jossounou, Grimaldo, Hofmann, Adli, Schick

Molde

Martin Linne and Martin Bjornbak are both out injured for Molde in this game.

Predicted Lineup: Petersen (GK), Lovik, Haugan, Oyvann, Ellingsen, Haugen, Eriksen, Breivik, Grodem, Eikrem, Berisha

Player to Watch: Patrick Schick

Patrick Schick has had injuries and had to deal with the form of Victor Boniface this season, meaning he has played in only six games from the total of 21 Leverkusen matches.

This meaningless game for the Bundesliga league leaders now means Schick likely gets a start in this game and he will be eager to shine. The Czech Republic international has scored one Europa League game from two outings and also netted one in one from the DFB-Pokal campaign.
