Football Prediction of the Day Inter vs Leverkusen
It was also seen in the match with Getafe how important it is to have standing matches in the last weeks, Inter managing to win in front of Getafe with the score of 2: 0, Getafe looking quite modest in that game.
And if Inter prevailed without too much emotion, Leverkusen barely defeated Rangers with the score of 1: 0, still being sheltered from the result of the tour, but even so, the game of the Germans is not a scary one for Inter, Leverkusen finishing on 5 Bundesliga season. Leverkusen also played this season with Juventus, losing both games, 3: 0, respectively 2: 0 and so it can be said that they have little chance of eliminating the second position in Serie A, a team with a very good team, who can win this competition.
