Inter vs Bayer Leverkusen Prediction & Betting tips
The eight quarter-finalists in the UEFA Europa League were determined last week. With VfL Wolfsburg and Eintracht Frankfurt, two of the three German representatives had to give up the sails.
The last remaining Bundesliga team is the Bosz-Elf from Bayer Leverkusen, who are toying with the title at the final tournament in North Rhine-Westphalia. In the quarter-finals, which will be contested in Düsseldorf, there will be a duel between Inter Milan and Leverkusen on Monday evening.
The best bookmakers on the market see Inter Milan versus Leverkusen as favorites according to current odds. The match rhythm with the Nerazzurri is definitely an advantage. Serie A did not end until the end of July, while the second leg of the round of 16 represented the first appearance for the Bosz-Elf after a month’s break.
Inter Milan :
Antonio Conte started his engagement with the Nerazzurri with a clear mission – the title win in Serie A has to come. The first triumph since the 2009/10 season was missed, but at least the runner-up championship could be celebrated for the first time since 2010/11. Nevertheless, the house blessing in Milan hangs crooked and Conte recently criticized the club management massively. It is by no means certain whether the most expensive coach in Serie A will continue to work at Inter in 2020/21.
Inter secured the runner-up championship on the last matchday thanks to a victory against CL participant Atalanta Bergamo. In the end, Inter had only one point behind in the Serie A table, but the Scudetto dream had to be written off early on.
The three-time UEFA Cup winners (most recently in 1998) have been working against the ball in the past few weeks. Italian football has been described as defensive and destructive for years. This does not apply to Inter, but goals against are few and far between.
Seasoned Samir Handanovic not only conceded the fewest goals in the league (36), but also kept his box clean in the most recent five competitive games. In the quarter-finals between Inter and Bayer Leverkusen odds of over 2.00 are offered so that both teams will not score.
Due to the global pandemic, the first leg of the last 16 could not be played in March. Therefore, the quarter-finalist had to be determined in a single game on a neutral pitch. In Gelsenkirchen Romelu Lukaku and Christian Eriksen scored the 2-0 win, but Getafe missed a penalty when the score was 0-1.
The penalty resulted from a handball, otherwise, after brief problems at the start of the game, Inter barely gave them any chances. Compared to the Getafe match, Milan Skriniar will probably slip back into the regular formation, otherwise changes are not expected.
In the German Bundesliga, the Bosz-Elf gambled away the Champions League starting place in the season finale and finished fifth behind Gladbach. Winning the Europa League title is the last chance to qualify for the 2020/21 premier class.
The door for the final tournament at home was already wide open and basically the works team only had to walk through in the return game. The Scots, who started the championship last weekend, could not take advantage of the long break at Bayer (one month no game) at any point in the game.
Leverkusen acted sovereignly without the suspended Kerem Demirbay and had no problems against the weak Scots. The only drawback was the exploitation of the chances, because the offensive negligently left several top chances. The fact that the fourth Europa League game in 2020 was also won is thanks to the Bosz-Elf Moussa Diaby, who scored the 1-0 winner shortly after the restart.
The last remaining Bundesliga team will certainly be challenged more on Monday evening. Compared to the Rangers game, Chilean Charles Aranguiz will be out due to a yellow card suspension. It can be assumed that Kerem Demirbay will take over his part, otherwise hardly any changes are to be expected. Above all, Ezequiel Palacios delivered a strong performance in his starting XI debut.
