Bayer Leverkusen achieved a neat 1-0 victory against the Norwegian football team Rosenborg Trondheim. The match, which took place last Thursday, was the last one of group K in Europa League. This means that I’ve won the bet I placed on the victory of Leverkusen.
Bayer Leverkusen introduced a couple of youngsters into the team, since they were already qualified for the knockout stage. One of them, Julian Riedel, managed to fructify an excellent chance after he slid into Carlinhos low cross at the second post, and scored the only goal of the match, in the 65th minute. Leverkusen started this confrontation highly motivated but they failed to make use of their ball possession against the visitors as the match progressed. This was the reason why the scoring opportunities were so rare before the break.
A nice moment was offered by Niklas Loms, the debutant goalkeeper of Leverkusen, who managed to defuse the sideways scissor kick of Tarik Elyounoussi with a superb reflex.
All in all, it was a deserved victory for Bayer Leverkusen. After this result, they finished group K on the second position, behind Metalist Kharkiv and followed by Rosenborg Trondheim.
