Bayer Leverkusen wants to shake off its many personnel problems and yet move into the quarterfinals of the Europa League. “We are disappointed and sad because of the injuries. We will have to be constant, very focused and very accurate in every detail,” said Trainer Gerardo Seoane in front of the tricky secondary-return match on Thursday (18:45 / RTL +) against Atalanta Bergamo. The first leg was lost in Bayer in Bergamo 2: 3. The following Bundesliga derby against the 1st FC Cologne (0: 1) Supertalent Florian Wirtz suffered a cruciate ligament tear, also Jeremie Frimpong (seasonal-off to Sydesmoseriss) and Patrik Schick (muscle fiber rupture) are long. “The game is very important. We will give everything on the place to take in the next round,” said Seoane. The coach called “flexibility and rendering”. Midfielder Ezequiel Palacios declared, Bayer have “the weapons necessary”. The focus is important.
