Diego Simeone’s men will be looking to kick out Bayer Leverkusen again from the round of 6 as they did 2 years ago. They will welcome Leverkusen at at Estadio Vicente Calderon on Wednesday for the second leg tie of the round of 16.

Los Rojiblancos have a 2 goal advantage as they start this game, they defeated the German side 4-2 in Germany few weeks back. They narrowly won Bayer Leverkusen 2 years ago in this stage of the competition. They will be hoping to inflict another round of 6 defeat on the German side as they are already 2 goals up and have 4 away goals to their name.

Bayer Leverkusen have a lot of work to do if they are really ready to turn the tables around against Atletico Madrid. It was Atleti who kicked them out Leverkusen in 2014/2015 edition of the competition. Revenge will be on their minds, but this looks too far from happening as they are already down with 2 goals.
