In the case of YB’s Europa League opponents, the last competitive game of 2020 is likely to remain a key moment of the current season. On December 19, Leverkusen – at the time, leaders of the Bundesliga for two match days – led 1-0 at the break against Bayern Munich. But instead of a 4-point lead, 45 minutes later there was a 1: 2 home defeat and the loss of first place under the Christmas tree.
Things no longer work at Leverkusen
Eight game days later, the “Werkself” are 13 points behind the series champions from Munich in 5th place and currently have to digest a painful 2-2 against Mainz. At the beginning of the 90th minute, Peter Bosz’s team was still leading 2-0.
Ali Camara and Jean-Pierre Nsame have to be replaced on Thursday because of being sent off from the group stage. With Cédric Zesiger and Jordan Siebatcheu, there are strong substitutes available.
Leverkusen with a replacement goal
Leverkusen coach Bosz is also confronted with an unpleasant personality. His regular goalie Lukas Hradecky had to pass the break with heel problems at the weekend. The refore, against YB substitute Niklas Lomb (27) comes to his fourth competitive game. That should not calm Bosz. Last weekend he stated: “We are concerned about the loss of control.”
