Bayer Leverkusen is going to host Atalanta BC in the second leg of their Europa League 2021-22 encounter. The first leg was an exciting goal-filled encounter in which Atalanta leads 3-2 and with no option but to attack, the anticipation is for another similar match.
Coming into this match, Bayer Leverkusen has just stuttered a bit in its recent form with three losses and a draw in its most recent five games. That draw was against Bayern Munich, though, and can be seen as a creditable result. At third in the Bundesliga standings, there is no doubt about the quality that Bayer Leverkusen possesses.
Atalanta has had a tough Serie A 2022 season but it certainly seems to be doing very well in the Europa League. Three wins in three Europa League matches (and a lead going into this second leg) will no doubt give Atalanta the confidence that it can continue that run. Atalanta has three wins, a draw, and one loss in its most recent five matches across competitions.
Match prediction and football betting tips for Bayer Leverkusen vs Atalanta BC Europa League 2021-22. The match is going to be played at the BayArena, Leverkusen, Germany on the 17th of March 2022.
Bayer Leverkusen has suffered a big loss by losing Florian Wirtz to injury for the rest of the season. This loss comes in addition to the loss of Patrik Schick, who was the leading goal-scorer for the team. This means that Bayer Leverkusen is going to have to rejig its attack ahead of a game where it must score freely in this game.
Atalanta also has similar problems as Duvan Zapata and Josip Ilicic will not be available for selection. We do think, however, that Atalanta has more depth in attack and should be able to cope better.
With better recent form and more options in its attack, We think Atalanta has a great chance of winning.
Bet on Atalanta to win.
A 1 goal cushion is significant but not enough to allow Atalanta to rest on its laurels. It will have to look for opportunities to score and increase the pressure on Bayer Leverkusen. The home team, on the other hand, has no option but to keep attacking.
This is why we think it is likely that both teams will score in this match and although the odds are a bit short, we think it is a relatively safe bet.
