Bayer Leverkusen vs R. Sociedad
Leverkusen continue their impressive performances this season, increasing the pressure on leading duo, Dortmund and Bayern. Sami Hyypiä`s side have won 6 out of 7 games in Bundesliga, losing only away to Schalke, with a 17-7 scoreline, which is impressive, considering the fact that they have scored more than Bayern Munches.
Sociedad produced a big surprise when they managed to better Valencia and finish on the Champions League play-off berth and even a bigger surprise when they eliminated experienced and routined side Lyon in the play-off, but they are out of form since the win over Lyon. The Basques are without a win in their last 6 matches, losing 3 times, including a 0-2 home defeat against Shakhtar on Matchday 1.
Leverkusen should have the upper hand in this tie, as they are in a great form at the moment, especially in front of their own fans. Since April 2012, Leverkusen have played 28 games in all competitions and have only been defeated 3 times, against top opponents: Europa League finalists Benfica, Bayern and Dortmund. Sociedad have been a nice surprise on last season, but after the departure of their coach this summer, Montanier, they are on a downtrend.
Bayer L. without: Gonzalo Castro; Jens Hegeler.
Real S. without: Xabi Prieto; Daniel Estrada; Esteban Granero; Diego Ifrán.
Pick: Bayer Leverkusen
