Bayer Leverkusen vs. West Ham Prediction

First of all, Bayer Leverkusen have failed to score in just one match this entire season. Yes, you read that correctly, only one match, that's absolutely insane. That only match not scored in was a 0-0 draw versus Monchengladbach on January 27, where despite not scoring the match, they still registered 2.99 xG, in other words, they should have absolutely scored. For this reason I feel very strongly about Leverkusen.

As for West Ham, this is certainly on the riskier side of this bet. They'll be without Jarrod Bowen, Edson Alvarez, and Kalvin Phillips but they still have a healthy Mohammed Kudus and most importantly, Lucas Paqueta. Since Paqueta's return from injury this season, West Ham has scored in eight out of nine matches.

As for today's script, I think David Moyes understands that with his weakened midfield, he won't be able to hold off Leverkusen all match, so they need to have a plan to be able to snatch at least one goal on a counterattack. Leverkusen will be tempted to try to put themselves in an especially good position before playing the return leg at London Stadium. I like our chances of Leverkusen overcommitting numbers at some point and getting punished by the trio of Michail Antonio, Kudus, and Paqueta.
