An intriguing contest awaits us on Thursday night when West Ham United host Bayer Leverkusen for the second leg of their Europa League quarter-final.

The Hammers were very successful in Europe at the start of the season, winning five of their six Group A games and beating Freiburg 5-1 on points in the round of 16. They travelled to Germany last week with plenty of confidence to face in-form Leverkusen in the quarter finals but couldn’t get even a draw. David Moyes’ side registered just one shot on goal, losing 0-2 and also suffered another defeat in the league with the same scoreline last weekend.

Bayer Leverkusen meanwhile have surprised everyone this season. Die Werkself thrashed Werder Bremen last weekend to register their first ever title in the Bundesliga history and are yet to suffer a defeat in all competitions this season. With the team still in the DFB Pokal and also in a good position in Europe, Xabi Alonso will fancy his side to win two more titles.

Betting Tips West Ham vs Bayer Leverkusen: Both teams to score

The Hammers have failed to score in their last two games, but they have a good record when it comes to scoring goals in Europe. Indeed, West Ham United boast at least one goal from each of their last sixteen matches on the European stage. Bets on btts – yes were won in more than half of those fixtures.

Bayer Leverkusen have also struggled to keep clean sheets away from home in Europe. Die Werkself finished just two of their last six games on the road in Europe and both sides scored in half of those fixtures.
