Bayer Leverkusen

      Tip Reasoning

      It was a cagey affair in Italy last week when Bayer Leverkusen visited the Serie A side, with the narrow scoreline after 90 minutes reflecting the tightness of the match.

      The Germans had the majority of possession in a match of few chances, but Lazio were the team who broke the deadlock 13 minutes from time when substitute Balde Keita scored the only goal of the game.

      This, along with Valencia vs Monaco, is one of the highest profile clashes of the Champions League playoffs, with both teams being regulars in the competition at the group stages.

      This loss was the first time Bayer Leverkusen had failed to win in 4 matches and they have bounced back well with an away win over Hannover in the Bundesliga.

      Lazio also managed to follow up this match with a win when they beat Bologna 2-1 on Saturday, but previous to that hadn’t been in great form.

      They had lost the previous 4 matches in a row, the last of which saw them lose the Italian Super Cup to Juventus.

      Bayer Leverkusen were a bit unlucky to come away from Lazio behind on aggregate, as they actually looked the better team in Italy.

      It is expected that they will perform even more dominantly in front of a home crowd in Germany though, but it could be made more difficult by the fact that Lazio have a lead to hold on to.

      Lazio haven’t been particularly good at the back lately and apart from the game in midweek they have conceded in all of their last 9 matches.

      Leverkusen to qualify at 11/8 are great odds, because should Leverkusen get back into the game they will be on level pegging with the home support behind them.
