Compared to 3: 4 against Dortmund, Bayer-Coach Gerardo Seoane rotated on four positions: Instead of Bakker, Andrich, Paulinho and Schick (all bank) began sinkgraven, Palacios, Adli and Alario.
Ferencvaros coach Peter Stöger (formerly Cologne and Dortmund) exchanged compared to Derby with Honved Budapest (1: 0) on the weekend twice: Wingo started on the right-heavy position instead of Botka. In the defensive midfield, Loncar began instead of Laidouni (yellow-red lock). Several more actors, such as the Slovak international MAK (formerly Nuremberg), were missing.
Bayer starts weak – two hits unknown
The Hungary, which had narrowly failed in the Cl-play-offs against the Young Boys Bern \ – the ex-club of Seoane – by two 2: 3 defeats, caught a start to the game in the game: NGuen was in the 8 , Minute links steeply sent and kept the overview with a passport to the freely incoming Ryan MMAEE in the Bayer penalty area, which only had to push for 1: 0. Even after that, Leverkusen initially looked vulnerable, Hradecky had to defuse a tight shot of Wingo (11.).

Only slowly, the nervous and defensively susceptible Bayer eleven then became better in the game. A shot of Palacios (18th) as well as a Demirbay free kick (25th), the Ferencvaros-Keeper Dibusz served, caused the first exclamation mark. In the final quarter of the first half, the pressure became bigger. Alario Forced Dibusz again to a parade (31.), then the time has come: after skillful preliminary work on Diaby and then Frimpong achieved Palacios with the help of the inner post compensation (37.)
Shortly afterwards, it seemed to give the next cold shower for the Rhineland, but a hit by Vecsei to Eckball was returned to VAR consultation for hand-play (39.). Also a supposed head gate of Tah for the now offensively stronger Bayer-eleven was not recognized due to foul match (45.). So it went with 1: 1 in the break.
Seoanes change are paid quickly
As at the beginning of the game Ferencvaros also designed the initial phase of the second half more open. After around a quarter of an hour Bayer increased but the pressure. Adli failed after Wirtz preliminary work on Dibusz (59.), then a shot of Wirtz itself was just blocked (60.). However, there were occasional uncertainties in the defense of the Werkself: Sinkgraven clarified with his last action in the game just against the too easily broken Ryan Mmaee (64.). But then a triple change of Seoane made himself fast. Joker Bellarabi forced a misfight near the Hungarian penalty area – Frimpong then served Wirtz in the center, which clarified the 2: 1 (69.).
It was ultimately the decision, because the Budapest became a little tired then could no longer provide serious danger in front of the gate of Hradecky. Instead, the Joker Schick and Amiri missed shortly before the end 3: 1 only scarce (84., 86.).
For Hungary, the league will continue in the league for the coming Wednesday at Fehervar FC, before the game against Betis Seville is pending on September 30th in the EL. Leverkusen is re-used on Sunday (15.30 clock) at VFB Stuttgart. In the Europa League follows the journey to Celtic Glasgow.
