Last five H2H: Qarabag struggle away from home

Despite holding Leverkusen to a draw at home, Qarabag are certainly up against it to keep their Europa League adventure going. The Azerbaijan side have a chance of progressing, but after losing 5-1 the last time they were on German soil, it's very unlikely.

Bayer Leverkusen preview: No slip-ups are predicted

Bayer Leverkusen and Xabi Alonso were certainly left shocked when they could only scrape a draw away to Qarabag in the first-leg, but they should have far too much at home, a place where only two teams have gone this season and been able to take points off of the Bundesliga leaders.

Predicted lineup: Kovar (GK) – Grimaldo, Hincapie, Tapsoba, Kossounou – Xhaka, Palacios – Adli, Wirtz, Frimpong, Schick

Qarabag preview: Always the chance for a shock

The only team to have beaten Qarabag when they've been playing away from home in the Europa League this season is Leverkusen. So, while it's not beyond the realms of possibility for them to cause an upset, it looks extremely unlikely.

Predicted lineup: Lunev (GK) – Bayramov, Huseynov, Mustafazada, Vesovic – Andrade, Jankovic – Zoubir, Benzia, Leandro Andrade – Juninho

Player to watch – Patrik Schick

It's been an indifferent personal season for Patrik Schick who's only scored six goals across all competitions, but he's also missed 18 games through different injuries. Schick does have three in his last three Europa League games, which is encouraging for this clash.

Schick finding his feet in Europe

Schick has six goals in 17 Europa League appearances so it's a competition which the Czech Republic international has loved during his career. Leverkusen's big striker netted a second-half stoppage-time equaliser last time out against Qarabag so he will certainly be a feared man on Thursday.
