Bayer Leverkusen vs Atletico Madrid Prediction
Bayer Leverkusen have been hit by a sharp decline in form. They have just one win to boast of from their last six games in all competitions. It is also worth mentioning that the German outfit have hit rock bottom in Group D, and have been at the losing end in each of their last three European clashes.
Nevertheless, the hosts are currently unbeaten in their past four games on home soil. Furthermore, the home side certainly gave Lokomotiv Moscow a run for their money in their previous Champions League matchup here, wherein they lost by no more than a narrow 2-1 margin.
Atletico Madrid, on the other hand, are on a stellar unbeaten run at the moment and have picked up the win in two of their last three fixtures. They have also been recording back to back victories in their group clashes so far. The most recent of which, was a 1-0 win against this very same foe.
Taking into account that their previous head to head game here also saw Atletico Madrid taste success, the favorites to secure all three points in this one would have to be the guests.
Be that as it may, the visitors have been sharing the spoils in their previous two outings on the trot. With two of the last three clashes for Bayer Leverkusen here also ending in a draw, the safest punt is undoubtedly a double chance backing Atletico Madrid.
Additionally, Diego Simeone’s men have been a tough team to breach, even on the road. The visitors have kept a clean sheet in their three out of their previous four outings and have conceded just once in the process as well.
Considering that two of their past three h2h meetings here have also witnessed fewer than 2.5 goals on the charts, goals are likely to be hard to come by this Wednesday.
