Europa League: Werkself face AS Monaco in play-offs

Bayer 04 will play French Ligue 1 club AS Monaco in the knockout round play-offs in the UEFA Europa League. That was the outcome of the draw on Monday 7 November held at the UEFA headquarters in Nyon in Switzerland. The former Hungarian player Zoltán Gera pulled out the club names.

First leg Thursday 16 February:

Bayer 04 Leverkusen vs AS Monaco

Second leg Thursday 23 February:

AS Monaco vs Bayer 04 Leverkusen

The eight group runners-up in the UEFA Europa League were in Pot 1; the balls for the teams finishing third in the groups in the UEFA Champions League – including Bayer 04 – were in Pot 2. Clubs from the same football association cannot play each other at this stage.

ROLFES: "strong attacking side"

Simon Rolfes, Bayer 04 sporting managing director, said: "A French opponent was to be expected in the draw. And now it is actually AS Monaco. I think it's an attractive draw. We have met in Europe several times and they have always been tight and closely fought games. Monaco are currently fifth in the French league and again in the race for the top spots. They are a strong attacking side with a very good squad and our fans can look forward to seeing them at the BayArena. I expect two equally contested games but our target is obviously to go through to the Round of 16 in the Europa League. A highly interesting competition as these play-offs show – with quality teams facing each other. Of course, we are particularly looking forward to meeting up with Kevin Volland. That in itself makes this clash special."
