German Bundesliga continues - unlike the Czech Fortuna Liga - and Bayer played their last game on Monday. The Werkself defeated Augsburg home in Bay Arena 3-1. Bellarabi, Alario and Diaby all scored two goals in last two games for Leverkusen.
During 2020 Leverkusen played one more game than Slavia. The red and whites got 6 points more than Bayer in their 21 games of 2020 and 0.38 points per game more than our Thursday opponent. Bayer were losing points mainly at the end of 2019/20 season. They managed to keep only 7 clean sheets, in 7 games they conceded 2 or more goals.
On the other hand, Bayer are very dangerous in front scoring 44 goals in 22 games. Havertz and Volland were the biggest stars of the last Leverkusen season scoring 30 goals together.

Dangerous actions are usually coming from both wings, Bellarabi and Diaby scored three goals against Nice, Bailey added two assists.
