Bayer Leverkusen vs FC Porto
Europe- Europa League
Date: Thursday, 20 February 2020
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: BayArena (Leverkusen)
The Champions League campaign was one to forget for Bayer this season. They lost 4 of their 6 group stage matches in a group consisting of giants like Juventus and Atletico Madrid. After 12 wins, they are 5th in Bundesliga despite some defensive nightmares. They may not win the league but could have a respectable season in Europe.
Porto is coming into this match on the back of an away win against Vitoria SC in Primeira Liga. They are group G champions in Europa League, but it was not easy at it sounds. It was a group of equals, where Rangers and Feyenoord were believed to be too strong for the Portuguese.
