Today's Predictions for Bayer Leverkusen vs Roma

Roma have won only one of their six away games in the Europa League so far ahead of their trip to play Leverkusen on Thursday. Read our top Bayer Leverkusen vs Roma predictions for this week’s fixture below and when you’re finished here, head over to our football betting tips page for more expert picks.

Bayer Leverkusen to Win

Roma edged out Bayer Leverkusen 1-0 in the clubs’ Europa League semi-final first-leg clash in Italy last week, though the Giallorossi’s away record in the competition this season has been underwhelming to say the least and their propensity for coming unstuck on the road could scupper their chances in the return fixture. Jose Mourinho’s charges have won only once in six attempts on their travels in the UEL this term, while Bayer have won five of their last seven assignments at home in all competitions. With those runs considered, the first of today’s Bayer Leverkusen vs Roma predictions tips the German outfit to triumph.

Under 2.5 Goals

It took a single second-half strike from Roma’s Edoardo Bove to separate the teams in the first-leg and goals could be thin on the ground again on Thursday when the sides meet for the concluding fixture. Despite struggling for wins on the road in the Europe League, Roma have conceded just four times in their last five away games in the tournament, with under 2.5 goals landing in all but one of the same contests. The pattern could be similar in Germany and with so much riding on the result, another tight tussle is anticipated.

Bayer Leverkusen vs Roma Team News & Injuries

Read all of the latest injury updates, Bayer Leverkusen vs Roma lineups and team news for Thursday’s Europa League contest below.

Bayer Leverkusen

Patrik Schick, Andrey Lunev, Karim Bellarabi and Charles Aranguiz are all missing this week through injury while Odilon Kossounou and Robert Andrich have also been added to the treatment room. Head Coach Xabi Alonso didn't rotate his team much in Bayer's 1-1 draw at Stuttgart at the weekend.

Predicted Lineup for Bayer Leverkusen: Hradecky – Tapsoba, Tah, Hincapie – Frimpong, Palacios, Demirbay, Bakker – Diaby, Wirtz, Hlozek

Roma

Marash Kumbulla is listed as injured for Roma though the Italians have few personnel issues to contend with other than that. Jose Mourinho changed his side around at the weekend against Bologna (0-0) and his star turns should be fresh and firing for Thursday's semi-final as a result.

Predicted Lineup for Roma: Patricio – Mancini, Smalling, Ibanez – Llorente, Matic, Cristante, Spinazzola – Pellegrini, Belotti, Abraham

Player to Watch – Lorenzo Pellegrini

Lorenzo Pellegrini was an influential figure in last week’s semi-final first-leg against Bayer Leverkusen and the 26-year-old had three shots and played three key passes in Roma’s 1-0 triumph. The schemer has the skills to be a real nuisance again in Thursday’s second-leg in Germany.

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