The unbeaten Bundesliga side already have set one foot into the finals

Bayer 04 Leverkusen are showing no signs of stopping. A typical visit to AS Roma’s Stadio Olimpico should have brought some problems but they managed to clear that with ease. In the first leg of the UEFA Europa League semi-final, Xabi Alonso’s team struck two goals to see the aggregate scoreline before the second leg set at 2-0 in their favour.

AS Roma will now be playing the visitor’s role as they step into Leverkusen’s backyard – the BayArena. Last season’s runners-up of UEL will have to come up with something surreal against the unbeaten Bundesliga team. The overall winner of this two-legged affair will face either Atalanta or Marseille in the final to be held in Aviva Stadium in Ireland next month.

Kick-Off

Form

Players to Watch

Florian Wirtz (Bayer Leverkusen)

The 21-year-old is nothing but a genius on the football pitch. Last game, Florian Wirtz scored the opener and is expected to trouble the Italians once again. So far he has scored four goals while also providing four assists in the 2023-24 UEL season.

Paulo Dybala (Roma)

The star player – Paulo Dybala will be expected to become the main man here. He has lots of experience and can be the clutch player to change the tie in favour of his team. Dybala may have netted just two goals so far in this competition but if he helps his side here obviously that will be worth more than a lot of goals.

Match Facts

  • The hosts have a two-goal advantage after the first-leg results
  • In the last six trips, to any European competition, AS Roma have failed to win against German football clubs
  • The visiting team’s Romelu Lukaku is the third top scorer currently in UEL with seven goals

Injury & team news

Everything is fine in the home camp. There is no concern of injury or suspension before this interesting battle.

After Roma’s last game which was against Juventus in Serie A, fans will hope everything is fine with their star player Paulo Dybala. Dybala was withdrawn at halftime and hopefully, it was to aid his recovery rather than a concern for fresh injury.

Roma wins – 2

Predicted Lineup

Bayer Leverkusen predicted lineup (3-4-2-1):

Svilar (GK); Karsdorp, Mancini, Smalling, Spinazzola; Cristante, Paredes, Pellegrini; Dybala, Lukaku, El Shaarawy

Match Prediction for Bayer Leverkusen vs Roma

After a 2-0 result from the first leg away trip already in the bag, the world knows it is hard to bet against current Bayer 04 Leverkusen at home. The unbeaten German first-tier team is too strong to be dismantled at home given they have a two-goal advantage even before kick-off. Expecting Alonso’s team to move to the finals.

Prediction: Leverkusen 2-1 Roma (aggregate: Leverkusen 4-1 Roma)
