  • Leverkusen have won one and lost two of their previous three UEFA Cup/Europa League semi-final ties (W vs Werder Bremen 1987/88, L vs Parma 1994/95, L vs Roma 2022/23).
  • Leverkusen have won nine and drawn three of their last 12 UEFA Europa League matches.
  • Leverkusen have lost the second leg in only two of their last 15 UEFA competition two-legged ties (W8 D5).
  • Leverkusen are unbeaten in their last eight UEFA competition matches at home (W6 D2).
  • Leverkusen have won all their previous five home matches in the Europa League this season.
  • Leverkusen have scored 29 goals in their previous 11 Europa League matches this season. Their highest total in a single season in UEFA competition is 32 (2001/02).
  • Leverkusen’s total of nine matches won in European competition this season is their joint-highest tally in a single season. They also won nine in the 2001/02 campaign.
  • Leverkusen have won nine out of the previous ten UEFA two-legged contests when they have won away from home in the first leg. The one tie they lost was against Udinese in the 1999/00 UEFA Cup third round where they followed a 1-0 win in Italy with a 2-1 defeat at home and were eliminated on away goals.
  • Roma are in the semi-finals of a UEFA competition for the fourth successive season (2020/21 UEL, 2021/22 UECL, 2022/23 UEL). They are aiming for a third successive final appearance.
  • Roma have won two and lost one of their previous three UEFA Cup/Europa League semi-final ties (W vs Brøndby 1990/91, L vs Man United 2020/21 and W vs Leverkusen 2022/23).
  • Roma have won their last 11 UEFA competition two-legged ties.
  • Roma have won only two of their previous 15 UEFA competition matches away from home against German teams (D2 L11).
  • Roma have lost the second leg in only one of their last 16 UEFA competition two-legged ties (W9 D6).
  • Roma have lost only one of their last ten away matches in all competitions (W5 D4).
  • Roma have won only one of their previous six UEFA competition ties when they have lost at home in the first leg. The sole occasion was against FC Nürnberg in the first round of the 1988/89 UEFA Cup when they recovered from a 2-1 home defeat with a 3-1 victory after extra-time in the second leg.


The real dominant talking point ahead of this second-leg at the BayArena is the possibility that is growing of Bayer Leverkusen winning a treble without losing a single game. The German champions are now unbeaten in 48 matches across all competitions – which is the most of any team ever since the introduction of UEFA competition. Roma have been magnificent and much-improved since Daniele De Rossi replaced Jose Mourinho in January but the Giallorossi ran up against an extremely impressive Leverkusen side last week as Xabi Alonso’s men won by two goals to nil at Stadio Olimpico. Roma have dipped slightly of late, too, with their 1-1 draw against Juventus meaning they have actually now managed just five victories in their last 12 games in all competitions. Backing Leverkusen looks the way to go once again.
