Bayer Leverkusen recovered from an early deficit as they came back to beat Hungarian side Ferencvaros 2-1 in the Europa League on Thursday.


Assessing the game after the win, Leverkusen coach Gerard Seoane said:

"It was a deserved victory after a bad start. The game was like an uphill climb.

"It got better and better and the back, we got stronger and created more goal-scoring chances."

The Leverkusen coach also provided an injury update on first-half goalscorer Exequiel Palacios, who was forced off in the 50th minute.

"Exequiel Palacios had a knock on his ankle in the first half. During the break, his foot was taped, and 'Pala' tried to keep playing. Then the pain got stronger, and I had to take him off."
