Bayer Leverkusen host Hapoel Beer Sheva in the UEFA Europa League on Thursday. The Werkself have a far superior squad and can make it count at the BayArena against a poor Hapoel Beer Sheva side.

Bayer Leverkusen Form


Bayer Leverkusen have been in fine form after winning seven of their last eight matches in all competitions. 

The Werkself began the UEFA Europa League group stage with a 6-2 home win against Nice. Goals to Nadiem Amiri, Lucas Alario, Moussa Diaby, Karim Bellarabi (2) and Florian Wirtz secured a one sided victory.

Peter Bosz’s side suffered a 1-0 defeat at Slavia Prague after Bellarabi was sent off in the 22nd minute. Leverkusen got back on track in the competition with a 4-2 win at Hapoel Beer Sheva, Leon Bailey bagging a brace and Florian Wirtz wrapping it up.

Bayer Leverkusen returned to the Bundesliga with a thrilling 4-3 home win against Borussia Monchengladbach. Lucas Alario equalised twice before goals to Bailey and Julian Baumgartlinger gave them a match winning lead.

Leverkusen’s last match was a 2-1 win at Arminia Bielefeld. Bailey opened the scoring with Aleksandar Dragovic scoring the winner in the 88th minute.

Bayer Leverkusen Team News


Right-back Santiago Arias is injured and Lars Bender came off at half time in Bielefeld. Mitchell Weiser could get a start here.

Aleksandar Dragovic replaced Sven Bender in the 50th minute in Bielefeld and could get the nod in central defence after his match winning goal. He competes with Jonathan Tah and Edmond Tapsoba who could return from a positive coronavirus test.

Midfielders Charles Aranguiz and Exequiel Palacios are injured. Expect Kerem Demirbay to start.

Winger Paulinho is still out injured but Bosz has plenty of options out wide with Leon Bailey, Florian Wirtz, Moussa Diaby and Karim Bellarabi all options. 

Patrik Schick could replace Lucas Alario up front.

Hapoel Beer Sheva Form


Hapoel Beer Sheva are on a poor run of form, failing to win in their last six matches in all competitions. 

The Israel club beat Slavia Praha 3-1in their opening Europa League group stage match. It was a fortunate victory after being comprehensively outplayed, Elton Acolatse stepping up with two late goals.

Yossi Abukasis’ side lost their next two matches in the competition, 1-0 at Nice and 4-2 at home against Bayer Leverkusen.

Hapoel Beer Sheva have won just one of their opening six matches in the Israeli Ligat ha'Al. They drew 0-0 against Hapoel Kfar Saba before a 2-0 defeat at Ashdod last time out.
