Leverkusen have a two-goal lead from the away leg at the Stadio Olimpico ahead of the home leg at BayArena on Thursday.

Heading into the weekend match against Eintracht Frankfurt, Leverkusen’s form in the Bundesliga had cooled, drawing the preceding two back-to-back matches.

Player Focus

This will be a midfield battle in the second leg, according to expert soccer predictions. Leverkusen’s midfield will be patrolled by Xhaka and Andrich, who offer a combination of creative spark and defensive grit. They will help Leverkusen to dominate the midfield and control the tempo of the match.

Roma’s midfield will be manned by Cristante, Paredes, and Pellegrini, who will control the tempo, nullify Leverkusen’s threat, and set the stage for the Serie A side’s attacks. 

The Leverkusen midfield is the football pick to dominate the match and give the home side the edge in this match.

Tactical Analysis

Roma will adopt a different approach to the game, prioritizing compactness and solidity in the second leg to avoid falling further behind. They will rely on counterattacking to create chances. They will cede possession to the home side and look to hit them in transitions.

Bayer 04 are the favorites, with their form this season, confidence, and abundance of quality in their ranks. Roma look bereft of confidence at the moment and there is a gap in quality between the two sides that the Serie A side has not shown signs of bridging.
