Bay Arena, Leverkusen

The Bundesliga action continues tonight as Xabi Alonso’s Bayer Leverkusen are all set to host VfL Bochum in the Bay Arena.
Ever since the appointment of former Bayern Munich and Real Madrid icon Xabi Alonso, we have seen some brilliant attacking football from Leverkusen, with an additional emphasis on quick interplay passing and swift transition periods. The change in the system, however, proved to be efficient, but the team still looks a bit rusty and is not fully acquiring the progressive prowess that the Spanish maestro wants interplay passing and swift transition periods. The change in the system, however, proved to be efficient, but the team still looks a bit rusty and is not fully acquiring the progressive prowess that the Spanish maestro wants. Leverkusen, who are in the Europa League, would be looking to gain all three possible points against Bochum and move an edge closer to those European spots for the next season.
VfL Bochum was, for many, one of the relegation contenders before the start of the season and is still pondering just a place above the relegation play-off zone. For them, however, the ambitions are quite different, and the main objective for the Bochum-based club is to stay relevant in the top tier of German football. Even gaining a point from the Bay Arena would be a massive achievement for them and would instil some confidence for the upcoming league matches.
