Worth mentioning: All of Bayer Leverkusen last eight victories were achieved by at least two goal margin. The team kept a clean sheet in the last two outings and they will be desperate not to concede on Thursday evening. The Russian league is still in winter break and Krasnodar were not involved in any games this weekend. They have played just three games in February, only the one against Leverkusen being a competitive fixture and the Russians might find themselves feeling a bit rusty. In comparison the German side took part in five official games so far this month. Four of the last six away games ended in a loss for Krasnodar and they were unable to score in any of the last two.
