In the 1/16 final first leg of the Europa League, Leverkusen is an opponent coming to Bern who was last with the worm.

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.

A short time later the coach dictated into the microphones of the journalists: “That was the worst game since I’ve been here.”  The  Dutchman has been in office since January 2019.

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.

Live notice

YB’s 1/16 final first leg in the Europa League against Leverkusen will be broadcast live from Bern on Thursday from 6:35 p.m. on SRF Zwei and in the Sport App.

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.”
