On Thursday, the Round of 16 of the UEFA Europa League will continue with the second encounter between Bayer Leverkusen and Ferencvaros. The match will take place at Puskás Aréna stadium, Budapest, Hungary. Leverkusen put on a dominant performance on their home field to take a 2-0 lead in the Round of 16 first leg.
Leverkusen won the first leg easily, 2-0, and if they win in Budapest, they will advance to the quarterfinals. At the weekend, Xabi Alonso’s team triumphed once more, coming from behind to defeat Werder Bremen 3-2 and maintain their chances of finishing in the top six.
Exequiel Palacios and Robert Andrich were brought back after serving one-match European suspensions, according to the Leverkusen manager. The two forwards Amine Adli and Adam Hlozek, who worked together to score Bremen’s third goal, were also rotated in. Even though the in-form Iranian made a late cameo, Azmoun was one of the five players who had to leave the game.
Although Florian Wirtz was completely left out of the team, he is anticipated to rejoin it right away. Patrik Schick, who missed the trip to Bremen due to a flare-up of the groin injury that sidelined him for three months earlier in the season, is still questionable.
With a home game against Bayern Munich coming up on Sunday, Alonso will aim to strike a balance between being competitive and resting his top players.
Although not having any new injury concerns, Ferencvaros was psychologically damaged by their weekend loss, which was their second consecutive defeat. The undisputed league leaders in Hungary lost 2-1 at home to Puskas Akademia, which means they have now won just one of their last six games overall and just one of their last four at home since the break.
The odds of Stanislav Cherchesov’s team scoring the bare minimum of two goals without a response to tie the game are definitely not in their favor. Leverkusen’s record of scoring in all but five of their 21 games since Alonso took over as head coach on October 8, 2022, does not either.
