Bayer Leverkusen to Win

Ferencvaros can be a tough opponent which they already proved this season, however, when it comes to the favorites in this Ferencvaros vs Bayer Leverkusen prediction, it's all about the German team. Coach Xabi Alonso transformed Bayer's fortunes, and since his arrival, things have dramatically changed for the better. The team won twice in a row in the Bundesliga, but they are still lacking some points to put them in a position to fight for European placement next season. Thus, their main road to get there is via Europa League. The Germans won the first leg with a goal on either side of the half-time, and with a 2-0 advantage they are looking good for progressing to the quarterfinals. Ferencvaros has been struggling at home lately losing this past weekend to Puskas Academy at home, however, their advantage at the top of the Hungarian championships is vast, so that loss didn't hurt them much.

Under 2.5 Goals

Leverkusen let loose on Sunday playing a five-goal thriller against Werder, and there were some changes made for the team in that game. There will be a different approach to the game against the Hungarian champions, and Bayer will look to avoid any slip-ups, especially in the defending department. Ferencvaros had ten under 2.5 goals this league season and four in their last five matches, while Bayer is one of the most efficient teams in Germany playing in 16 matches with more than two goals scored compared to eight in the other direction. Nonetheless, it's about the approach, and ahead of the Ferencvaros vs Bayer Leverkusen duel, the visiting team's game plan is often dictated by their opponent's willingness to attack.

Team News, Preview, and Ferencvaros vs Bayer Leverkusen Lineups

Ferencvaros

The Hungarian titlist has come a long way this season, and they will be happy with how they produced in Europe. It's a continuous improvement that is important for a team that not long ago could only dream about playing in the last 16 of a European competition. Muhamed Besic and Owusu are carrying injuries before the match on Thursday.

Probable lineup: Dibusz, Botka, Konester, Abena, Civic, Vecsei, Esiti, Zachariassen, Traore, Mmaee, Marquinhos.

Bayer Leverkusen

It has been a tricky season for Bayer. They were expected to contend, if not for the Bundesliga title, then at least for a Champions League place with ever-growing competition for those places in Germany. However, they failed in that aspect and will be happy to participation in Europe next season. However, their focus now firmly lies on Europa League, and the team will be confident that can win the trophy which would put them in the Champions League next season after all. Andrey Lunev and Charles Aranguiz are out until the end of the current month, while Karim Bellarbi and Patrick Schick should be ready for a trip to Budapest.

Probable lineup: Hradecky, Hincapie, Tah, Tapsoba, Kossounou, Demirbay, Amiri, Frimpong, Wirtz, Azmoum, Diaby.

Player to Watch: Moussa Diaby

There is a lot of attention directed at the 23-year-old France left-wing player, and it will be hard for Bayer to resist any offers that may come for Moussa Diaby this summer. He has performed well throughout the season scoring 11 goals in all competitions with six assists on the record as well.

Starting Lineups

Official lineups are usually released approximately one hour before kick-off.
