Bayer Leverkusen vs Nice Team News

Nice qualified for the 2020/21 Europa League group stage under special circumstances. Their fifth-place finish last season certainly played a role but their European football fate was, most importantly, sealed by PSG’s French Cup victory over Saint Etienne.

The Eagles will be looking to pick from where they left off the previous season, with another decent run-out this time around. The French outfit have started the season in fairly strong fashion, recording 4 wins, a draw and two losses so far. 

Patrick Vieira’s men have conceded a whopping nine goals this season – a testament to the instability of their defense. These ones must improve on the defensive front if they are to stand any chances against German juggernauts Leverkusen in their opening Europa League fixture.

Bayer Leverkusen have been a very solid defensive unit, perhaps, at the expense of attacking play this season. They have had a somewhat slow start to the 2020/21 Bundesliga season having snatched only one win in four games, sharing the spoils in the other three. 

Die Werkself have themselves a solid team, but are lacking cutting-edge in attack – hitting the target only three times in the league this term.
However, they had their scoring boots on for the DFB Pokal first-round match against fourth-tier side Eintracht Norderstedt 03 as they hit seven unanswered goals past the sorry opposition. 

It can be argued that this emphatic victory doesn’t count for much, given it was scored against a much more inferior opposition. Nonetheless, it goes without saying that the result must have given Leverkusen’s attackers a major confidence boost.

Injured or Suspended Players

Bayer Leverkusen: Paulinho, Patrik Schick, Santiago Arias and Florian Wirtz.

Nice: Kasper Dolberg.

Bayer Leverkusen vs Nice Predictions

Bayer Leverkusen will most likely prize defensive solidity over adventure but should be able to grab one or two goals against Nice’s shoddy defense. Nice will look to focus more on the attacking side of things and French star Amine Gouiri is certainly one to watch. The 20-year-old forward, brought in from Lyon over the summer, has struck the net 3 times and recorded 2 assists in seven games – an outstanding output at this age.

The youngster will surely welcome the idea of opening his European account against Bayer Leverkusen. However, he should still end up on the losing side as we fancy Bayer Leverkusen to come out tops.
