Europa League action will be the talk of the town as the final 8 teams will be fighting to get closer to the trophy. On Thursday, Leverkusen will be hosting Union Saint-Gilloise at BayArena. Both the teams are evenly matched and we predict an absolute thriller between the two teams. Leverkusen have an advantage as they have a good record at the home venue.
Leverkusen defeated Ferencvaros in their second leg and qualified themselves with an aggregate score of 0-4. The football betting sites have Europa League odds on their platform.
Union Saint-Gilloise displayed a dominant performance against their German counterparts Union Berlin and won round 16 with an aggregate score of 6-3.
Leverkusen have regularly qualified for the Europa League but they have failed to win the trophy. This year again the German giants will be giving their best shot to lift the trophy. In the Bundesliga, the team is witnessing a nine-match unbeaten streak and they are currently in the 6th spot in the Bundesliga point table. However, the team is struggling to make it to the top four in the German League.
Lunev and Schick are out of action because of their back and groin injuries respectively.
Predicted Lineup: Hradecky, Kossounou, Tah, Tapsoba, Frimpong, Palacios, Andrich, Bakker, Diaby, Wirtz, Adli
The Belgian giants are again coming out on top this year but there is still some work to be done. With 69 points and 21 wins, Union Saint-Gilloise are standing in the second spot in the domestic league. However, the club came into the spotlight when they defeated Union Berlin in round 16 and knocked out their German counterparts. Les Unionistes Union 60 is coming to play the Europa League fixture after a draw against Gent for the Belgian Pro League.
The Belgian club has no injuries in their camp and they will have the best playing XI.
Predicted Lineup: Moris, Kandouss, Burgess, Van der Heyden -Neiuwkoop, Amani, Lynen, Teuma, Lapoussin, Adingra, Boniface
Leverkusen have a lethal attack which helps them to take an early advantage in the game. Les Unionistes Union 60 are lacking support from defence and hence we predict a win for Leverkusen.
