          Bayer Leverkusen vs Roma: Preview & Prediction

          BayArena welcomes Bayer Leverkusen and Roma this Thursday in the second leg Semi Finals of the Europa League. Leverkusen picked up a big win in the first leg as Roma will be looking to overturn the two goal deficit away from home.

          Date: 09/05/2024

          Kick off time: 20:00

          Location: BayArena

          The Europa League Final looms, with Bayer Leverkusen already having one foot in the Final. However, Roma do have a mountain to climb but it is a deficit that has been overturned before.

          Bayer Leverkusen have already won the Bundesliga title, but after 32 games, Leverkusen have 26 wins and six draws. As the only unbeaten side in the league, Leverkusen sit 15 points above Bayern Munich in second.

          This is the ninth time Leverkusen have competed in the Europa League with the furthest they have gone being the Semi Finals. Last season Leverkusen made the Semi Finals where they once again faced Roma. However, last season, Leverkusen lost 1 - 0 on aggregate as Roma went on to the Final.

          Roma currently sit fifth in the Serie A after 35 games. The Yellow and Reds have 17 wins, nine draws and nine losses which leaves them on 60 points, four points from Champions League football.

          The Yellow and Reds have a good record in the Europa League. In seven seasons in the competitions, Roma have made the Semi Finals once before this season and have made one Final appearance. The Final appearance came last season where they faced Sevilla. The game finished 1 - 1 after extra time and was sent to penalties. Sevilla picked up a 5 - 2 win on penalties to lift the trophy.

          Bayer Leverkusen and Roma have met eight times in their histories, with the first meeting coming in the 2004 Champions League Group stage. Both Bayer Leverkusen and Roma have picked up two wins each but the most common outcome of this fixture is a draw, happening on four occasions.

          The last five games in this fixture have seen one win for Bayer Leverkusen, two wins for Roma and two draws. Two of the last five games have had both sides on the scoresheet and usually when both sides score, it promises a lot of goals - at least five.

          Footy Accumulators Prediction

          Bayer Leverkusen have been unstoppable this season and it’s unlikely to change this week. However, Roma are likely to at least get on the scoresheet this time. Bayer Leverkusen 2 - 1 Roma.
