A place in the quarter-finals of the 2023-24 Europa League campaign will be at stake when Bayer Leverkusen and Qarabag go head to head on Thursday night in Germany.

Leverkusen have been by far the best team in the Bundesliga this season and have taken that form with them to Europe. Xabi Alonso's men ensured they remain unbeaten in all competitions this season last week by overturning a two-goal deficit to draw 2-2 in the first leg of this tie in Azerbaijan. Die Werkelf continued their excellent campaign days later by beating Wolfsburg 2-0 in the league and will hope for the same outcome this week.

Qarabag meanwhile are 45 points clear at the top of their domestic standings, but the Azerbaijani Premier League is nowhere near as strong as the German top flight. The Horsemen suffered defeats to Leverkusen both home and away in this season's Europa League group stage, but they will surely take heart from last week's draw.

Bayer Leverkusen vs Qarabag Betting Tips: Over 2.5 goals

Goals have not been hard to come by for the hosts in recent months. Leverkusen boast at least two goals in each of their last eight matches and just three saw fewer than three goals. Die Werkself played four games at the Bay-Arena in that time and only one ended with under than 2.5 goals.

Speaking of goals, Qarabag have scored at least twice in each of their last 13 games in all competitions although they kept only one clean sheet in that time. The Azerbaijanis also have a good scoring record in the Europa League, having scored 2 or more goals in their last five fixtures.

  • Best Tip: Over 2.5 goals
