Match Preview & Team News
Atletico Madrid have the chance to inflict a third loss in three games on bottom outfit Bayer Leverkusen on Tuesday evening as teams take on each other at Estadio Wanda Metropolitano. Los Colchoneros are well placed in Group D having claimed four points from the opening two fixtures. Late second-half goals from Stefan Savic and Hector Herrera rescued a point for Atleti in the opener against Serie A champions Juventus, while the second round saw Diego Simeone’s men ease past Lokomotiv Moscow 0-2 away in the Russian capital.
Los Colchoneros have not been doing so well in the domestic campaign, though. The weekend’s 1-1 draw to Valencia was their third subsequent draw in La Liga, the one which dropped them down to 5th place in the league ladder. To make matters worse for Simeone, his expensive signing Joao Felix suffered a slight injury against the Bats and will likely skip Bayer’s visit on Tuesday.
The German side will enter the game in an even worse mood. They fell badly (3-0) away at Eintracht Frankfurt on Friday evening. It was the second straight away loss for the squad led by Peter Bosz, the previous one coming at the hands Juventus (also 3-0) in the second round of the Champions League in Turin.
The visitors are thus in huge danger of being cut adrift with two defeats and a double header against Atletico Madrid upcoming. Atleti have a fantastic home record against German teams in continental competitions (7 wins and 2 draws in 9 games). They shipped just five goals in nine La Liga matches this season and we can easily see them keeping another clean sheet against the out-of-form Germans here.
