The UEFA Europa League returns to the fold with another set of matches this week as Real Betis take on Bayer Leverkusen on Thursday. Both teams have impressive players at their disposal and will want to win this game.

Bayer Leverkusen have largely exceeded expectations this season and are in third place in the Bundesliga standings. The German side was stunned by Bayern Munich over the weekend, however, and will need to bounce back in this match.

Real Betis, on the other hand, have punched above their weight over the past year and will be confident ahead of this match. The Andalusian giants have won both their games in the Europa League and could potentially move to the top of their group this week.
