Bayer Leverkusen vs Rangers Betting Tips: Latest odds, team news, preview and predictions
Bayer have not played a competitive game in over a month since they lost 4-2 to Bayern Munich in the DFB-Pokal final on July 4, and so may not be as fresh as their Scottish counterparts.
Despite a break of over four weeks, bet365 make Leverkusen 8/13 (1.62) favourites to win this clash and advance to the quarter-finals in style.
The draw, which would see Bayer qualify on aggregate, is priced at 16/5 (4.20) with the online bookmaker.
Kerem Demirbay is suspended for the Bundesliga side, who have no injury worries ahead of this clash at BayArena.
Gerrard will likely field the same XI that beat Aberdeen in their season opener at the weekend, with the exception of Leon Balogun who is ineligible after joining Rangers from Wigan in July.
Although Leverkusen are arguably the stronger side on paper, the lack of match practice could benefit Rangers on Thursday evening.
The Gers barely missed a beat in Saturday’s win at Aberdeen, having 15 shots at goal and dominating possession with 61 per cent of the ball.
It will certainly not be easy in Germany, especially with Bayer knowing they can afford a draw or even a defeat and still qualify, but Rangers will certainly feel they can give themselves a chance of qualifying.
Rangers will be in good spirits after their win over Aberdeen and with Bayer perhaps rusty, the 6/5 (2.20) price from bet365 on Gerrard’s men avoiding defeat offers good value for punters on Thursday.
Odds correct at the time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
