The Europa League quarter-finals return leg sees West Ham vs Bayer Leverkusen face each other at London Stadium, with the Hammers facing a monumental task.

Their Recent Performance

West Ham finds themselves in a tumultuous period. Following a disheartening 2-0 defeat to Bayer Leverkusen in the first leg, their woes continued with a similar scoreline loss against Fulham in the Premier League. This slump has pushed them outside the European competition spots and into a disappointing 8th place.

West Ham's recent form paints a bleak picture. Only a solitary victory against Wolves graces their last five Premier League outings. These setbacks have fueled speculation about manager David Moyes' future, with whispers of a potential replacement by the legendary José Mourinho.

In stark contrast, Bayer Leverkusen under Xabi Alonso is an unstoppable force captivating the football world. Last Sunday, they displayed championship-caliber dominance by dismantling Werder Bremen 5-0. This emphatic victory secured a historic first Bundesliga title for "Die Werkself" in their 120-year existence, a remarkable feat exceeding all preseason expectations.

Leverkusen's Bundesliga campaign is nothing short of phenomenal. They boast 25 wins and just 4 draws, a testament to their relentless pursuit of glory.

West Ham vs Bayer Leverkusen Match Prediction

On paper, Bayer Leverkusen is the clear favorite to progress to the semi-finals. However, the emotional rollercoaster of securing their first Bundesliga title could pose a challenge in maintaining their focus against West Ham.

Will West Ham rise to the occasion and produce a miraculous comeback, or will Bayer Leverkusen continue their unbeaten run and march towards Europa League glory? This return leg promises to be a thrilling encounter.
