Bayer Leverkusen vs AS Roma: Preview, kick-off time and where to watch on TV and online

AS Roma are one match away from the Europa League final and defend a slim first leg lead against Bundesliga club Bayer Leverkusen at the BayArena.


AS Roma take a slender advantage to Germany as they face Bayer Leverkusen in the second leg of their Europa League semi-final on Thursday, after a 1-0 win in the first leg.

An Edoardo Bove goal was enough to settle the match in Rome and put Jose Mourinho‘s side on the brink of a second European final in as many seasons, but they must navigate a difficult encounter at the BayArena.

Leverkusen are without a win in four matches across the Bundesliga and Europa League, but will be hoping to make home advantage count in their efforts to reach the final and end a 30-year trophy drought.

Bayer Leverkusen vs AS Roma: Predicted line-ups

Mourinho rang the changes in the goalless draw against Bologna in Serie A last time out, but Rui Patricio, Gianluca Mancini, Lorenzo Pellegrini, and Tammy Abraham should all return to the starting line-up.

The Giallorossi may also risk Paulo Dybala, but Chris Smalling has not fully recovered to start, whilst Diego Llorente, Marash Kumbulla, Rick Karsdorp, and Stephan El Shaarawy are out.

Leverkusen miss Karim Bellarabi, Robert Andrich, Odilon Kossounou, Andrey Lunev, and ex-Roma striker Patrik Schick through injury.
