Lazio
    Bayer Leverkusen

      Tip Reasoning

      The visitors suffered a heartbreaking loss in last season’s competition when they were eliminated on penalties by Atletico Madrid in the the round of 16. No doubt, they will be extra motivated to get back into the competition to make amends this time around. Coming off of a 2:1 oppening day win over Hoffenheim in the Bundesliga, should prove to be a very stern test for the Roman side.

      Lazio have had their troubles enterint this season and they are heading into this one coming off of a disappointing loss to Juventus in the Italian Super cup. Prior to the Super Cup they suffered defeats in three friendly fixtures as well. Because of this, we are hesitant to recommend betting on the home side in this one.

      The pressure to deliver a positive result while playing the 1st leg at home will also have an effect on the performance of the Lazio players, especially since they enter the match as slight underdogs. Lazio’s coach Pioli may opt for a 4-2-3-1 formation with Biglia and Parolo in deeper midfield roles, as this particular formation proved to be a very successful one for Lazio last season.

      Leverkusen are known for their extreme confidence and their manager Roger Schmidt will certainly know how to employ a couple of tactical surprises for this one.

      Taking everything into consideration, our betting advice for this match would be a DRAW at 12/5 odds on bet365.
