West Ham vs Bayer Leverkusen Prediction & Betting Tips - Europa League

 by Ian John | in Europa League Prediction

West Ham face Bayer Leverkusen in the Europa League quarterfinal second leg tie on Thursday night. The Hammers trail 2-0 from the first leg in Leverkusen in what was just their third defeat in the competition this season. Leverkusen, who were crowned Bundesliga Champions at the weekend, remain unbeaten in all competitions this season. West Ham's last defeat in the knockout stages of a European competition came against a German side. Eintracht Frankfurt defeated them 1-0 at home and 2-1 in London in the semi-finals of this competition two years ago. The winner of this fixture will take on either AC Milan or Roma in the semi-final.

West Ham - Bayer Leverkusen: Form Analysis

West Ham's home form in Europe has been excellent, with four wins from four and just one goal conceded with 11 scored. Domestically, their record is much less impressive with just one win in their last eight home games. Their away form has been better over that same period, with three wins, a draw and five defeats. David Moyes' team come into this game having suffered a disappointing 2-0 defeat at home to Fulham at the weekend. It left them in eighth position in the Premier League with 48 points from 33 games. On the plus side, in their last home Europa League game, they did put five past Freiburg.

Bayer Leverkusen's record-breaking season continued at the weekend with a 5-0 win over Werder Bremen. The victory secured them their first Bundesliga title. Xabi Alonso's men are now 42 games unbeaten and have drawn just five of those matches. They finished top of Group H with maximum points from their six games, scoring 19 goals in the process. But they were given a real scare by Qarabag in the Round of 16, coming back twice from 2-0 down to secure a draw in the first leg and then a 3-2 win in the second. That win came courtesy of two very late injury time goals from striker Patrick Schick. Two late goals also did for West Ham in the first leg. So with Leverkusen's form being so imperious and confidence sky high, it is hard to imagine the new Bundesliga Champions faltering.

West Ham & Bayer Leverkusen Squad Analysis

David Moyes will be without four players through injury for this second leg tie. Goalkeeper Alphonse Areola's groin issue will keep him out for at least another couple of weeks. Jarrod Bowen will be on the sidelines with West Ham's star striker out with a lower back injury and no real timescale set for his return. On-loan Kalvin Phillips is also out with a hamstring issue. Youngster George Earthy likely won't feature at all for at least the next week or so after being concussed and hospitalised against Fulham at the weekend. There's bad news for Hammers fans on the suspension front too with their two Brazilians, left back Emerson Palmieri and key attacker Lucas Paqueta, both suspended.

Bayer Leverkusen boss Xabi Alonso should have a relatively strong squad to select from for the second leg. Striker Adam Hlozek remains a doubt with an ankle injury, while Noah Mbamba isn't eligible to play in Europa League games. Amine Adli is eligible to play after serving a suspension in the Bundesliga at the weekend. Leverkusen star midfielder Florian Wirtz will be walking a tightrope with the 20-year-old just one booking away from missing the first leg of a potential semi-final. Wirtz, along with strikers Victor Boniface and Patrik Schick and defender Alejandro Grimaldo have been some of the key players for Bayer in their record breaking campaign thus far.

West Ham - Bayer Leverkusen Key Points

  1. Leverkusen have scored two goals in three of their four away Europa League games this season.
  2. West Ham have scored 11 goals in their four Europa League home games this season (2.75 average).
  3. Leverkusen have failed to score in just a single game this season.

  5. Both teams have scored in four of West Ham's last five home games in the Premier League.

Our West Ham vs Bayer Leverkusen Prediction

West Ham are in a difficult position in this second leg. They did come back well against German opposition in the last round, but Bayer Leverkusen are a much different proposition than SC Freiburg. The 2-0 lead from the home leg looks a large one, especially given the German team's record-setting season. While this is a game that the data suggests will see goals, picking the result is tougher. It is going to be difficult for West Ham home to score the goals to turn this around, without conceding one or more in reply. Therefore, our West Ham v Bayer Leverkusen prediction is a flexible Over 2.5 Goals to be scored in the game.

Prediction :

Over 2.5 Goals to be Scored

West Ham vs Bayer Leverkusen - Other Interesting Predictions

Florian Wirtz (Leverkusen) to score at any time

Leverkusen's young midfielder has been exceptional this season and Wirtz's performances have attracted attention from many top clubs around Europe. He is the main attacking threat from midfield for the German side. Additionally, last weekend he scored his first-ever hat-trick in professional football, with a trio of strikes against Werder Bremen. So our second prediction for West Ham v Bayer Leverkusen is for Florian Wirtz to score at any time.
