Bayer Leverkusen
    BATE

      Tip Reasoning

      Bayer Leverkusen has endured an indifferent start to their German Bundesliga campaign, winning two and losing two. However, they enter a tough Champions League group on the back of an impressive demolition of Lazio in qualifying and they have qualified for the knockout stage in each of their last six group stage appearances.

      The group also contains Barcelona and Roma, which makes this home opener against the group’s minnows especially important for Bayer.

      BATE will seek inspiration from Darmstadt’s surprise Bundesliga win over Leverkusen away from home. It’s evidence that the German giants can be disrupted and locked out and that will be the exact formula that BATE attempts to implement.

      The best known member of the team’s squad is probably former Arsenal and Barcelona midfielder Alexander Hleb. He has been dealing with a few injuries over the last week, but he should feature on Wednesday.

      Three Reasons for Betting Tips

      1. BATE are best going forward

      We don’t expect Belarus’ leading club to attack from the offset, but we do think that they’ve got some quality going forward and some confidence. They may not set up to attack, but it’s likely that they will fall behind and at that point we think they have the fire power to get a goal.

      2. Goal difference could be important

      Make no mistake about it. This is a tough group. Bayer Leverkusen will know that and for that reason, they’ll maintain intensity aiming to score as many goals as they can.

      3. BATE won’t keep Bayer out

      It’s one thing to beat Partizan over two legs, it’s going to be a different kettle of fish on Champions League group stage debut for BATE.
