The same vulnerabilities were seen in the Europa League opening day trip to Ludogorets. The Germans were put to sword in the opening minutes and went 0-2 down by half-hour mark.

However, the 19-year Kai Havertz put on a show and was instrumental in the 3-2 comeback win, scoring twice at either ends of an Isaac Thelin goal.

The team come here after losing 2-4 to Dortmund on the weekend, a match they led 2-0 at half-time. Thus, Heiko Herrlich will be demanding a strong performance from his boys when they took the field against the team from Larnaca this midweek.

AEK Larnaca returned to the Europa League for the first time since 2011 and they had an underwhelming start with the 0-1 at home loss to FC Zurich.

The Cypriots finished bottom of the group in their last appearance at this competition and managed just 1 point from travels.

Bayer Leverkusen vs AEK Larnaca Predictions

It is turbulent times at Leverkusen, yet they must be confident here of a positive outcome as they have some quality match winners in the squad.

Larnaca’s away record in Europa League look decent, however they hardly met a team of Leverkusen’s caliber since 2016.

Considering all these and the rate at which Leverkusen is conceding goals, we may look into a home win with both teams scoring priced at 8/5 (2.60) odd.
