  • The Europa League (EL) Group A returns with this clash between Bayer Leverkusen and AEK Larnaca. The hosts look to double their points here.
  • This will be the first time Leverkusen have entertained Cypriot opposition on home soil. In their only ever previous encounter with a Cypriot side. Leverkusen emerged victorious as they won away to Nea Salamis Famagusta (2-0) in the 1995 UEFA Intertoto cup.
