Best Tip: Leverkusen to win

A Europa League win on home turf for Xabi Alonso's Leverkusen team win in the win / draw / win market is what we're predicting. Stats suggest that their form is good coming into the match, and they should be too strong for their visitors. The odds from the bookies suggest so too, and when that happens you've got reason to feel confident. A Leverkusen win is the bet we'd suggest, but it could be a close one.

As we move closer to kick-off, the bookmakers' odds are changing. The odds for a Bayer Leverkusen victory are getting shorter, and a West Ham United win are drifting. These changes shows there are plenty out there predicting victory for Xabi Alonso's men.
