In the 1st game Villarreal got the win 2-0 at El Madrigal.
Back at the weekend Leverkusen with a 1-0 victory over Hamburg and got some air as they had failed to win any of the 4 previous fixtures in all competitions (1-1-3).
Leverkusen have only won twice in their last 8 matches in Europe,including the qualifying stages for Champions League but they are unbeaten at home in this year’s UEFA Competitions while in the last 4/5 games they scored 3 or more goals , on the other hand Villarreal on the road has failed to win in their last 8 away matches in all competitions.
Coach Roger Schmidt stated for the game:"We are going through a difficult spell,but that does not mean we should all of a sudden start questioning everything we do.
It is crucial to have a professional attitude if we are to be successful,as we have to be more consistent and always play at a high level."
Leverkusen for tonight's game will be missing some key players, Captain Lars Bender, Kevin Kampl, Marlon Frey and Charles Aranguiz,Tin Jedvaj while Christoph Kramer and Calhanoglu are a doubt
This weekend Villarreal lost to Sevilla (4-2) and it was the 1st time they conceded 4 goals since last May when they lost 4-0 to Atl Madrid.
Villarreal has scored at least 1 goal in the past 12 away games in Europe !.
Villarreal midfielder Tomas Pina stated for the game:"We are only thinking about surviving this stage. A tough opponent awaits in a difficult stadium and qualifying for the next round would be a huge boost"
Villarreal for tonight's game will be missing Jonathan Dos Santos,Jaume Costa,Mateo Musacchio,Samu also the reserve goal keeper Areola who started in the first leg clash is also injured and Sergio Asenjo could take his place tonight.
Both teams will be missing some key players tonight but this should not be a problem to make goals,
Villarreal most certainly are the big favourites after the 2-0 of the first leg and the know that with one goal they can end the hopes of Leverkusen for a progress .
Leverkusen in Bay Arena are powerful and are expected to play strong from the beginning and this will leave open spaces for Villarreal to counter-attack and there will be Bakambu waiting who is on fire this time of the year (4 goals in 2 games).
We should witness an open game with many goals tonight,other good bets for this game should be over 2.5 goals
