Bayer Leverkusen Double Odds: 1/16 after Europa League loss


Bayer Leverkusen are priced at 1/16 to complete a Bundesliga and DFB Pokal double this season.

Xabi Alonso’s side were looking to complete a historic, unbeaten treble in 2023/24 but those hopes ended on May 22.

The German outfit faced off with Atalanta on Wednesday evening in the final of the Europa League. Leverkusen were favourites ahead of kick-off but ended up losing the tie 3-0 - their first defeat in any competition this term.

FC Kaiserslautern vs Bayer Leverkusen

Had Bayer Leverkusen beat Atalanta and won the DFB Pokal, they would have become the first side in European history to complete an unbeaten treble.

However, three goals from Ademola Lookman on Wednesday killed off those chances, with Leverkusen now set to turn their attention toward their final game of 2023/24.

The Bundesliga champions are set to face off with FC Kaiserslautern on Saturday, May 25 at 7:00 pm BST.

Bayer Leverkusen had a fairly easy run to the final this weekend, with a 3-2 win over Vfb Stuttgart in the quarter-finals their only real test. As for FCK, they had a similarly easy run, with a 3-1 win over Hertha BSC in the last-eight their toughest challenge.

Heading into Saturday’s showpiece, meanwhile, Alonso and co. are heavy favourites to secure a win. The duo have met 22 times throughout history with FCK picking up just three wins compared to Leverkusen’s 15, with the remaining four matches ending as draws.

There is also a major gulf in quality between the two teams this season. Leverkusen became the first side in Bundesliga history to win the title while going unbeaten. FCK, on the other hand, ended the normal campaign sat 13th in the 2. Bundesliga, with only 11 wins from 34 outings.

In turn, Leverkusen are priced at 1/7 to win in 90 minutes on Saturday and 1/16 to lift the trophy. But given the fact FCK are such massive underdogs, Alonso and co. should have little issue sealing the win in normal time.
