Match prediction

It’s difficult to predict the Bayer Leverkusen vs West Ham game. Leverkusen’s in-form attacking line-up, which includes Schick and Wirtz may be a threat, but David Moyes’s resilient and well-organized West Ham team might provide a counterpoint. In the end, the game will be hotly contested, with Leverkusen’s home advantage perhaps coming into play.

Prediction: Bayer Leverkusen 3-1 West Ham
