After crushing Union Berlin's European hopes in the round of 16, Belgian side Union Saint-Gilloise will be hoping to send another German team out of the Europa League when they host Bayer Leverkusen in the second leg of their quarterfinal tie on Thursday.

Leverkusen will be no pushover, however, riding an 11-match unbeaten streak in all competitions after a 0-0 draw with Wolfsburg on Sunday.

Bayer 04 coach Xabi Alonso is expected to make three changes to the side that drew with Wolfsburg, with Jonathan Tah, Florian Wirtz and Amine Adli all set to return to the starting line-up after resting.

Exequeiel Palacios, who was forced off at the break of the 1-1 draw in the first leg, will miss out through injury, with Kerem Demirbay likely to fill the void. Meanwhile, Patrik Schick remains absent due to injury.

Union Saint-Gilloise also rested a number of key players in their 2-1 win over Seraing at the weekend and have no fresh injury concerns.

Here are our Union Saint-Gilloise vs. Bayer Leverkusen lineup predictions.
