West Ham vs Bayer Leverkusen prediction

West Ham did superbly to hold Bayer Leverkusen for over 80 minutes in the first leg and a single goal deficit would give them a real chance back on home soil. Despite Bayer Leverkusen being on cloud nine after their title win, Alonso runs a tight ship, and they should have enough to move into the semifinals.

Prediction: West Ham 1-1 Bayer Leverkusen
