1X2 football predictions for Bayer Leverkusen – Krasnodar
Bayer Leverkusen hosts Krasnodar in a match rematch of the 1/16-final of the UEFA Europa League. The duel will be played on Thursday, February 21, at the BayArena stadium in Leverkusen.
The first match between the two teams ended without goals scored on Russian soil. The Krasnodar hosts created some good chances for a goal but Ivan Ignatyev and Wamberto could not write. For the Leverkusen guests, Kevin Volland missed good situations, with Julian Brandt as a chance. In the rematch, the match is expected to be different and Bayer Leverkusen will impose strong domestic pressure. The German team is a favorite to qualify for the next stage but should not underestimate its opponent who is second in the Russian Championship.
Over the weekend, Bayer Leverkusen’s team beat 2-0 on their own Fortuna Dusseldorf. It was a second success in the last three games for Peter Bosz’s team. Bayer Leverkusen has only one loss in his last six matches in all the tournaments – 1:2 on the Heidenheim pitch. Peter Bosz’s winners have won four of their last five matches at BayArena and are in a series of two consecutive wins on their own pitch. In these five matches the hosts scored 12 goals and scored four goals, keeping only one dry net.
Krasnodar’s team had no defeat in their last five games, but only one of those matches was official. Murad Musayev’s graduates recorded four wins and two losses in the group stage of the UEFA Europa League. In their visits, the Russian team beat Akhisarspor 1-0 and lost their visits to Standard Liege (1:2) and Sevilla (0:3). Krasnodar has six losses in his last nine tournaments, so he plays quite a bit away from home. Bayer Leverkusen has been in excellent terrain over the last few months, and I think the hosts will win the match to qualify for the UEFA Europa League 1/8-finals.
