Our prediction for this Europa League match:
Top position in Group C will be at stake when Bayer Leverkusen and Slavia Prague face each other at BayArena on Thursday. Bayer Leverkusen are eyeing their fourth consecutive win of the process, and a victory over Slavia will see them clinch top position in the standings. Sven Bender, who missed the Nice game with injury, is back to contention, while Alario, Aranguiz, Arias, Palacios, and Paulinho remain in the recovery room.
Slavia Prague are enjoying a very successful season, with the team leading the chase for the domestic trophy, while clinching their spot in the Europa League last 32. The Czech champions are one point away from winning Group C, but given Bayer Leverkusen’s current form, we predict that the visitors are going to return to Prague empty-handed. Defender David Hovorka remains in the recovery room for the visiting team.
