Player to watch – Gianluca Scamacca

Bayer Leverkusen will have to keep an eye on Gianluca Scamacca who is having a brilliant season in this competition. The former West Ham striker averages a goal every 102 minutes in the Europa League and has scored eight in his last ten games in all competitions.

Scamacca striking early

The 25 year old has been particularly dangerous in the early stages. 27% of his Serie A goals this term have come in the opening 15 minutes while four of his six strikes in the Europa League have come before the break. Scamacca scored first in the away legs in the previous two rounds against Liverpool and Marseille.
