The first match between Bayer and Atalanta was exciting, with the teams scoring five goals against each other. Also, the Italians secured a 3:2 home win. Before the return leg, the Company's Eleven had personnel problems in their attacking line, which made it difficult for the Germans to progress to the quarterfinals. Atalanta are regarded as favourites, although they have just a narrow lead after the first leg.Get Your Welcome Bonus!
Bayer 04 Leverkusen
The first game in the Bundesliga was recently, but the Pharmacists went into the return leg against Atalanta with a three-match unbeaten streak. In addition, the Pharmacists were drawn against Bayern, and also lost their home game 0:1 to Cologne. Another unpleasant thing is that Wirz got injured in the Rheinland derby, while Schick remains hospitalised. Given that, Bayer needs a win on Thursday. These personnel problems could be fatal for Seoane's team. It is unlikely that the experienced Atalanta will miss out on such a chance to reach the quarter-finals of the second-placed European competition.
Another loss of points in Serie A will definitely reformat the Bergamo mentality for the Europa League. On Matchday 29, Atalanta is now 8 points behind Juventus in the Champions League zone. They have one game in hand, but their Serie A record is dismal with just one win in their last five encounters. In the Europa League, however, Atalanta is doing very well and a draw in Leverkusen will be enough to reach the quarterfinals. The team are travelling to neighbouring Germany with such a task in mind.

After the defeat in Bergamo, Bayer will have to take their chances and go on the attack with greater strength, as the team needs to score at least twice in order to qualify for the next round of the European Cup. Atalanta is a tactically very well-skilled team, able to play both first and second, and the Bergamas are productive in the Europa League. There is reason to believe that the Italians' high-scoring output in the second most important European competition will continue.
