Bayer Leverkusen vs. Molde preview: Team news and predicted lineups

Here is our preview of Thursday's Europa League group stage clash between Bayer Leverkusen and Molde, including predicted lineups.
Bayer Leverkusen will be aiming to finish the Europa League group stage with a perfect record when they welcome Molde to the BayArena on Thursday.

With five wins from five and a goal difference of 14-2, Leverkusen have been the dominant force in Group H and Xabi Alonso's men will be keen to continue in the same vein on Thursday.

Die Werkself have also been impressive on the domestic front, leading the Bundesliga unbeaten after a 1-1 draw with Stuttgart at the weekend.

As he's done so far this season in Europe, Xabi Alonso is expected to rotate his squad and rest some of his key players, with Matej Kovar, Josip Stanisic and Adam Hlozek among those who could start.

Unlike Leverkusen, Molde will be playing for progression on Tuesday, with the Norwegian side needing a better result than Qarabag to move into second place.

Molde are on an impressive six-match unbeaten streak, with their last defeat a 3-1 loss to Rosenborg in early November.
