Bayer L – Ludogorets, Europa League Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR LEVERKUSEN - LUDOGORETS
Leverkusen is not the team from the last year in Bundesliga, but Die Werkself are slowly starting to get better. They and Zurich are surely through in this group well above the other two teams by 9 points, while AEK and Ludogorets have only 2. For Bayer, however, it is important to finish first in order to be in a better position for the draw for the eliminations in February. Bayer is a team that has a history in European tournaments, so they will certainly not give up as far as possible in the Europa League. From what they have shown so far, their intentions seem to be serious.
Ludogorets has not won a game in the group yet, most probably will not win one. First, the greens are not what they were years ago. There is also no memory from the team that has fought teams like Liverpool, Real Madrid, Arsenal and PSG in the Champions League. At present, their goal remains the title in the Bulgarian Championship. They will play for their honor in Germany.
In the last match between Ludogorets and Bayer there were two comebacks and many goals. This, however, was the first match of the group and the motivation and attitude were quite different. Now the Germans are also hosts. Apparently, here is the difference in class as well as the ambitions specifically for this tournament. We expect Leverkusen to take this game without much strain. Forecast Leverkusen to win at 1.44. Alternative option – Leverkusen -1.0 AH at 1.65
