Europa League: Roma vs Bayer Leverkusen predicted XI

Roma will welcome Bayer Leverkusen at the Stadio Olimpico on Thursday in the first-leg of the Europa League semi-final. 

Leverkusen will be looking to avenge the 1-0 aggregate defeat they suffered at the hands of La Lupa last season in the semi-final of the European competition. Fans of football can watch this exciting contest through Europa League live streams.  

Xabi Alonso’s side recently clinched the Bundesliga title and are currently unbeaten across all competitions this campaign. 

Their unbeaten streak looked in danger after Stuttgart scored twice to go 2-0 up at the weekend. 

But Leverkusen battled back to secure a 2-2 draw, courtesy of goals from Amine Adil and Robert Andrich. 

Meanwhile, Roma are also unbeaten in their previous two Serie games, with Daniele De Rossi’s men holding Napoli to a 2-2 stalemate in their most recent fixture. 

Roma vs Bayer Leverkusen predicted XI 

Roma will be missing Zeki Celik due to suspension, and so manager De Rossi could feature Rick Karsdorp into the team. Romelu Lukaku is also unlikely to be available because of his muscle injury. 

Roma predicted line-up: Svilar; Karsdorp, Mancini. Ndicka, Spinazzola; Paredes, Cristante, Pellegrini; Dybala, Abraham, El Shaarawy.

Leverkusen boss Xabi Alonso will not be able to call upon the services of Adam Hlozek and Borja Iglesias, while there are also doubts over the availability of Jonathan Tah. 

Bayer Leverkusen predicted line-up: Hradecky; Kossounou, Tah, Tapsoba; Frimpong, Andrich, Xhaka, Grimaldo; Wirtz, Adli; Boniface.
