Europa League: Bayer Leverkusen with a roller coaster victory in the round of 16 – Bundesliga

by time news

What a game!

With a crazy 3-2 win over Celtic Glasgow, Leverkusen made the group win perfect and made it to the last sixteen of the Europa League after just five out of six match days.

It looked anything but great in the meantime. After an early opening goal by Andrich (16.), a weakened and up to now clearly better Bayer made life difficult for himself.

Goalkeeper Hradecky fists after a cross Finn Furuhashi in a clearing attempt. Referee Sidiropoulos gives a penalty and a yellow card after a short video check. Juranovic turned cool and with the help of the bar high into the goal. (40.)

Even after the break, no other picture: Leverkusen clearly better, but Celtic scores the second goal with the second chance. In the penalty area, Frimpong slips away against his ex-colleagues, so Furuhashi can calmly move to the left to Jota. This transforms ice cold below right (56th).

Even after that, Bayer makes it too cumbersome until miracle boy Florian Wirtz (18) really turns it up: First he can calmly cross from the right into the penalty area. Amiri stands all alone at the far post and lays down on the central midfielder. He hits him flat in the short corner and ties up the double pack. (82.)

Only five minutes later it will be beautiful. Again it is Wirtz who makes the game fast and puts the ball on Diaby, who is lurking in the penalty area. The Frenchman takes the ball straight away and hits it – and Leverkusen into the last sixteen!
