Bayer Set to Blast Through Nice Again
Bayer Leverkusen crushed Nice 6-2 when the sides met in October’s reverse fixture and the German giants are supported to bag another facile victory over Les Aiglons at Allianz Riviera this Thursday.
Nice are all but out of the tournament following back to back defeats against Slavia Prague and they would have to better the score-line that Leverkusen achieved over them here to stand any chance of reaching the Last 32.
After four consecutive losses in all competitions, a victory of any kind looks extremely unlikely for the hosts who have clearly suffered in recent weeks after a COVID-19 outbreak at the club.
Peter Bosz’ Leverkusen are absolutely flying on both fronts at the moment and travel to the Cote-D’Azur on the back on eight wins from their last ten outings in all competitions.
A 0-0 stalemate at home to Hertha Berlin on Sunday was undoubtedly a blip for Die Werkself, but they should return to their brilliant attacking best here against a Nice outfit that have shipped 11 goals in their last four matches.
The visitors have bagged 14 goals already in their four Group C outings and we expect them to add to that tally significantly at Allianz Riviera. As such, backing a Bayer win and over 2.5 goals rates the standout bet here and we’re also predicting a 1-4 triumph for the Bundesliga side.
