BATE have already made a success this season when the qualified in the UEFA Champions League, but in this moment , despite the fact that they are standing at the bottom of the table, still have a chance to reach the second phase of this competition. In the case of win they will have a real chances to play at least in the UEFA Europa League as the 3rd team in group. In the first match between these two teams, Bayer Leverkusen were better side and beat BATE 4-1. Home side have already showed that they can be very dangerous when they beat AS Roma 3-2 in the second round.

Bayer Leverkusen weren’t impressive this season in the UEFA Champions League. They have managed to win only one game in this competition, against BATE in the first round. In the last round they host Barcelona, so this match is must win for them in order to stay in a race for the second position and go through. Visitors are playing very open football, they score many goals, but on the other side their defence is very shaky. Big blow for them is the absence of two important defenders, both out due to suspension. But, they have no choice and have to attack and risk their own goal, in order to make good result.
