Bayer Leverkusen vs Rangers Prediction and Betting Preview 06 Aug 2020

The Match Is Over. Score: 1-0
Bayer Leverkusen vs Rangers PredictionNarrowly missing out on top-four this term, Bayer Leverkusen will absolutely be gutted with their league campaign. Having looked set for a fourth-place finish, a horrendous end to the season saw them plummet down the standings.
Match status: 2019/20 Europa League - Play Offs - 1/8-finals
Venue: BayArena (Leverkusen)
Following football restart after the extended coronavirus break, Leverkusen returned to the pitch firing on all cylinders. In fact, they were touted to give Bayern Munich a worthy challenge for league success, perhaps taking the title race right down to the wire.

However, Die Werkself slowed down towards season end as complacency set in. Also, the players must have been really jaded as head coach Peter Bosz maintained an unchanged starting XI in most of his fixtures. Soon enough, his side lost momentum and fell off the CL places completely.

With Europa League success providing a backdoor entry to the group phases of the Champions League, Leverkusen will definitely be placing utmo
zst priority on this competition. Expect a strong performance from the Germans when they take on Rangers in a second-leg EL fixture at the BayArena on Thursday.

Bayer Leverkusen vs Rangers Team News

Far from their ideal league campaign, Bayer Leverkusen will be looking to quickly put their woes behind them. They had been so impressive earlier in the season that many tipped them to bring Bayern Munich’s monopoly of title wins to a halt.

Continuing to string positive results on the trot, the Company’s Eleven looked hungry for league success. However, a horrific run that saw Leverkusen pick up a measly seven points from five games left them grasping for straws late on, as they ultimately relinquished their top-four status to Monchengladbach.

In the end, they were forced to settle for a Europa League place, sitting fifth on the log with 63 points from 64 games. Their domestic league campaign turning out so disappointingly, the same can be made of their run in the Champions League this season.

Pitted against the likes of Juventus and Atletico Madrid in Group D of the CL, Die Werkself were never expected to make it through to the knockout phases. Finishing third and crashing out of the competition, they can be forgiven for their failures given the stature of opposition they were up against.

Meanwhile, Rangers were pretty impressive last term, finishing second on the log. Worryingly for the Light Blues, they were a whopping 13 points adrift the league champions Celtic. With a new season already on, Rangers will be looking to bridge the huge gulf between themselves and Celtic.

Handed a pretty easy EL group comprising of teams like Young Boys and Feyenoord, Gerrard’s men finished second on the standings, just a point adrift of the table toppers FC Porto. Impressively, the Teddy Bears amassed a whopping nine points from six games.

Now, Rangers began the new Scottish Premiership season with a narrow 1-0 win over Aberdeen on Saturday afternoon. If Gerrard’s men are to stand any chances against Leverkusen in their European clash, they will need to play better than they managed during the weekend.

In the reverse fixture at the Ibrox Stadium, Rangers were dealt a huge blow, losing 3-1 to Bayer Leverkusen – a defeat that marked their first home European loss in 18 games. The visitors will need a strong performance in this second-leg fixture if they are to complete an unlikely comeback in Germany.

Bayer Leverkusen vs Rangers Predictions

Even though Leverkusen have not played a single competitive game in over two months, the players should not have any problems with that. In fact, with more than enough time to catch a rest, they must be buzzing ahead of this fixture.

Without a doubt, Die Werkself can boast of more talent within their ranks as well as competing in a more highly-ranked league – the German Bundesliga. As such, they are expected to deliver a win, perhaps hard-fought, to advance to the quarterfinals.
