- Six of Leverkusen’s seven Europa League games this season have yielded over 3.5 goals.
- Over 3.5 goals has happened in nine of Leverkusen’s last 14 home games.
- Four of Young Boys’ last six away games have seen four goals or more scored.
Plenty of entertainment at the BayArena
These two sides played out an entertaining first-leg, with Young Boys claiming a 4-3 victory to take a narrow advantage into this reverse fixture.
That was not just a one off for Leverkusen though, as six of their seven matches in the Europa League this season have seen over 3.5 goals scored, including in all three of their home fixtures.
Those goals have not just been reserved for the Europa League, as nine of Bayer’s last 14 games at the BayArena across all competitions have seen four goals or more scored.
Most of those goals have tended to come for Leverkusen, as they have only lost twice on home soil all season.
Young Boys are also regular scorers, with four of their last six away games seeing over 3.5 goals scored, while they are also leading the way for goals in the Swiss Super League this season.
Gerardo Seoane has also seen his side score in 10 consecutive away games in the Europa League, although remarkably only one of those matches has ended in victory.
It could be a similar story for Young Boys on Thursday, as we are predicting Leverkusen to win the match 4-1, which would also be enough to see them through in the tie.
However, our overall prediction is for over 3.5 goals in the match and we certainly expect the visitors to get on the scoresheet.
