Our prediction for this Europa League match:
All eyes will be on Sinobo Stadium when Slavia Prague and Bayer Leverkusen face each other in the Group C derby. Slavia Prague suffered a shocking 3-1 loss at Hapoel Beer Sheva in their Europa League opener, and it is no wonder they are seen as underdogs in Thursday’s football match. Bayer Leverkusen, on the other hand, rolled over Nice 6-2 in their opener, and seeing that the game will be played behind closed doors due to the fierce of coronavirus spread, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the Bundesliga side.
Bayer Leverkusen impressed in the triumph over Nice, and we predict that they are going to give fans yet another reason for celebration on Thursday evening. Keep in mind, though, that the likes of Aranguiz, Arias, Paulinho, and Schick are sidelined with injury for the visitors, while Jedvaj (coronavirus) is rated doubtful.
