Atletico Madrid vs Bayer Leverkusen Prediction
The hosts have fallen out of their winning groove and have been alternating between wins and draws in their last five games in all competitions. Nevertheless, the squad are still vying for the top spot in Group D along with Juventus, who are currently leading the cluster only on goal difference.
Diego Simeone’s men are a confident bunch on home soil as well and are yet admit defeat here this season.
On the other hand, Bayer Leverkusen have been hit by a sharp decline in form which has seen them pick up the win just twice in their last seven games. The away side have also been at the losing end in their previous two European clashes, the last of which was at the hands of Juventus by a hefty 3-0 scorecard.
It is also worth mentioning that the visitors have been fairly erratic on the road in their campaign, and have lost half of their last four trips on the road.
Furthermore, Bayer Leverkusen have never secured the bragging rights in any of their previous three visits to this venue. Taking into account that the hosts are unbeaten in their last five games here, count on the Spanish outfit to bag all three points in this one.
Additionally, the home team’s front line have hardly delivered in their recent clashes here and were without a goal to their name against both Los Blancos and Celta Vigo. The guests have not been racking up the goals tally in their outings as well, and have lost without finding the back of the net in two of their last four away games.
Also, all of their past three head to head meetings here have witnessed under 2.5 goals on the final scorecards. Hence, expect a low scoring clash this week.
