The next contender for the Geloroussi in the Europa League, led by Xabi Alonso, is now 6th, -5 from 4th and sees the Champions League.
A review of strength. Roma’s next European rival (Europa League semi-finalist) Bayer Leverkusen beat RB Leipzig 2-0 and remain in the race for a place in the upcoming group stage of the Champions League. Xabi Alonso’s side (who also played with Mourinho in the past) managed to struggle, keeping clean sheets, hitting Hlozik (40) and Amiri (86 penalty). Aspirin is the sixth, -5 of the Berlin Union IV. Leipzig instead falls out of the top four. Leverkusen has not lost in 13 matches.
Leverkusen forms a 3-4-3, with Adli, Hlozek and Diaby up front. Leipzig got off to a better start, almost taking the lead in the eighth minute with Werner (Hradecky good and quick to respond). The Bayer defense is always blocked, with Leipzig struggling to find space, despite playing the game and being more active and active. In the 33rd minute we see Leverkusen, with Hincapie hitting the crossbar: his shot from distance underestimates Blaswich and crashes into the top of the wood. However, Alonso’s team looks sluggish and tired of the European efforts and makes many technical errors: thus, Hluzik’s goal in the 40th minute is unexpected. Andrich ignites the counterattack, Diaby reaches back and Hlozek serves in the middle to make it 1-0. Even in the second half, it was Leipzig who played the game, often going into the opponent’s penalty area, with Leverkusen remaining balanced and disciplined. In the 64th and 66th minutes, the Red Bull-dominated team wasted two excellent chances with Nkunku and Werner, two chances that unnerved the game, with Leipzig flattened out from then on. And so Leverkusen took advantage of that with Frimpong, who was knocked down by Zuboszlai and got a penalty kick that Amiri converted in the 86th minute. With Leverkusen that continues to fly, in Germany as in Europe. He even dreams of the Champions League. Through the league or even the cup. Rome warned.
