Bayer Leverkusen Team News

Bayer Leverkusen had a great season behind them, in which they finished as the third-placed team in the league and thus secured a place in the Champions League. Given that prior to this season they were without Julian Baumgartlinger and Lucas Alario, the players who have a significant role in the club usually, they had to bring quality replacements for them, therefore, it was expected that they would be at the top of the Bundesliga this season as well.

Nonetheless, the Bayer Leverkusen team has had a desperate start to the new season. Following 12 games in the Bundesliga, they have only won nine points, and certainly the biggest problem is the last line, which received 25 goals. They have performed below the anticipated level in the Champions League as well. They are currently the last placed team in the group with four points won, and in this match they will be looking for points that can take them to the knockout phase of the Europa League.

Leverkusen is in a very bad shape, they are without a single win in the last five matches, and the level of their game is best shown by the 14 conceded goals in those matches. 

The only positive thing for Leverkusen before this match is that they have no major problems with absences. It cannot be relied only on the injured Azmoun and Aranguiz and on Hincapie, who is serving his suspension.

Club Brugge Team News

The Club Brugge team has been dominant in the domestic championship in recent years and is a regular participant in European competitions. In the Jupiter Pro League, they are a three-time consecutive champion and has been the best team for years.

Last season, Club Brugge fought an interesting battle with Royale Union for the title in the domestic championship. After several top reinforcements preceding this season, such as Yaremchuk, Boyata, Onyedika and Nilsen, it can be expected that they win the championship in the Jupiter Pro League this season a few rounds prior to the end.

They are currently the third-placed team in the Jupiter Pro League with 31 points won in 15 games, but these results are certainly affected by the League of Champions due to the fact that before the matches in the Champions League they rest key players in the domestic championship.

In the Champions League, Club Brugge has impressed all football fans. They have played four top matches with one heavy defeat against Porto, and with 10 points they secured a place in the knockout phase.

In this match, Club Brugge has enormous concerns with absences. They cannot count on Odoia, Onyedika and Sylla, who are three important players in the back serving suspension. Addition to them, Ruud Vormer, Mats Rits, Skov Olsen and Clinton Mata are also out of the machine.

H2H

  • In the first meeting in the group stage of the Champions League this season, Club Brugge defeated Leverkusen 1-0.

Bayer Leverkuse vs. Club Brugge Prediction

Leverkusen seems to be out of shape at the onset of this season, and the main reason for that is the last line’s play, which concedes more than two goals on average. Today against Brugge they are looking for points that can take them to the knockout stage of the Europa League. On the other hand, Club Brugge has already secured a place in the knockout phase of the Champions League and today they aim to secure the first position.

Before this match, Brugge has big issues with absences, especially in the last line where they will be without several key players, while Lever’s last line looks poor since the beginning of the season and therefore we expect a lot of goal chances from both sides.
