Bayer Leverkusen vs. Atl. Madrid: Match Preview

Hosting Bayer 04 Leverkusen managed to break free of the pressure in the Group E where AS Monaco won the first place, followed by the club from Leverkusen, then there was Tottenham ranked third. It's a remarkable fact that "The Lions" didn't lose any game competing with such strong sides - they drew four times and defeated Tottenham and Monaco with keeping a clean sheet on both occasions.

"The Mattressers" were possibly the solidest side as far as the group stage, they took the lead in Group D, losing only once to Bayer Munich by a narrow score 1-0, while the other corresponding matches Diego Simeone's men dealt with were masterfully won, and, in fact, they netted 7 goals, whereas only one got into their net for 5 games, which is an excellent outcome. Their situation in LaLiga BBVA is not that smooth, though, if we look into the standings and see Atletico Madrid fourth. Despite that locality, Madrid club in on a three-match winning streak in Spain and a 1-1 draw to Barcelona in Copa del Rey within this run.

So, this is going to be the fifth meeting between these two sides in history, and all of them were played to relatively a minimum of goals: the first two games ended with the same scoreline 1-1, participating in Europa league group campaign in 2010, then the other two left were held in 2015 when they met in the 1/8 finals, which saw Atletico advance onwards thanks to a better penalty shootout execution after 2-2 on aggregate.
Thus, to sum it up, we could refer to the fact showing both oppositions are able to find access to each other's goal, even though "The Mattressers" keep one of the solidest defence - it still lacks right-centre backs Juanfran and Diego Godin who will miss to play. And also Bayer Leverkusen have scored in every home match against Madrid club at "BayArena".
