Bayer Leverkusen vs Rangers Prediction
Bayer Leverkusen to Win – 8/13 with bet365.
Bayer Leverkusen finished fifth in the Bundesliga, narrowly missing out on a Champions League spot. In Europe, they dropped to the Europa League after a third-place finish in their Champions League group behind Juventus and Atletico Madrid. Leverkusen eased passed Porto in the first knockout round with a 5-2 aggregate win.
Rangers finished second in the Scottish league behind Celtic. After navigating their way through qualifying rounds, they emerged from a tough group, one point behind Porto. Steven Gerrard’s side saw off Braga in the last round but find themselves 3-1 down after their home tie.
Rangers have it all to do against one of the competition’s best sides. They will need to score three goals to have any shot at progression which seems like a step too far. Leverkusen will likely win again and confirm their quarter-final spot.
FC Basel vs Eintracht Frankfurt Prediction
FC Basel to Win – 31/20 with bet365.
Basel topped their Europa League group having failed to win their Champions League qualifying rounds. They won four, drew one and lost one on their way to 13 points, one point clear of Getafe. The Swiss side eased passed APOEL 4-0 on aggregate in the last round.
Eintracht Frankfurt finished ninth in the Bundesliga this season. They progressed to the knockouts of the Europa despite losing half their group games, coming second to Arsenal. The German side won 6-3 on aggregate with a home leg win helping them past FC Salzburg.
With the tie looking as good as wrapped up, Eintracht Frankfurt will need to throw caution to the wind. Basel have shown better form this season and should win again here.
Sevilla vs Roma Prediction
Sevilla to Win – 6/5 with bet365.
Sevilla to Qualify – 4/7 with bet365.
Sevilla finished fourth in La Liga to guarantee Champions League football next season. The Spanish side have not lost a game since the restart and have extended their unbeaten run to 17 in all competitions. They topped their group with five wins from six before edging past Cluj on away goals.
Roma will be competing in the Europa League again next season thanks to a fifth-place finish in Serie A. The Italian side won seven of their last eight games in the league. In Europe, it was a tight progression, with the Italians picking up just two wins and finishing a point ahead of Borussia Monchengladbach in third. A narrow 2-1 win over Gent saw them progress to the last 16.
The one-off tie will be played in Germany after the first leg was canceled due to the pandemic. Both sides have displayed good form since the restart but it is Sevilla who will be the more confident of the two sides, especially given their recent history in the competition.
Wolves vs Olympiakos Prediction
Wolves to Win – 8/11 with bet365.
Wolves to Win to Nil – 6/4 with bet365.
Wolves finished seventh in the Premier League and will need to win the competition in order to secure European football for next season. The Midlands side finished second in their group behind Braga, suffering just one defeat. A 4-0 home win was enough to see them past Espanyol as they ran out 6-3 winners on aggregate.
Olympiakos won the Greek league after going unbeaten in the regular season and losing just once in the Championship Round. They finished third behind Bayern Munich and Tottenham in their Champions League group, picking up four points to drop into the Europa League. A dramatic late turnaround was enough to defeat Arsenal over two legs to set up a tie with the side directly above them in the league.
Wolves grabbed a crucial away goal in their first leg as they drew 1-1. Their form since the restart has been reasonably strong, particularly at the back. The English side are the more likely victors here.
