Atletico Madrid vs Bayer Leverkusen PredictionAtletico Madrid v Leverkusen Prediction and Preview for Tuesday's group fixture in the Champions League. It has not been the dream start to the 2019 UEFA Champions League campaign for Bayer Leverkusen, sitting rock bottom on Group D standings, having failed to garner a single point so far this season. They have lost each of their two matches to Locomotiv Moscow and Juventus, the former heaping lots of pressure on manager Peter Bosz.
Match status: 2019-20 Champions League Group Stages
Kick-off:
Venue: Wanda Metropolitano (Madrid)
The home side, on the other hand, have been having a roller-coaster of a ride so far, sitting atop the standings with 4 points from a possible 6. With home advantage on their side this time around, they are huge favorites to emerge victorious from this encounter.

Atletico Madrid v Leverkusen Team News

Diego Simeone’s men have lost that winning groove that we have come to know them for over the years and in recent weeks. From a team racking up the three points week in, week out, it is somewhat disturbing that they have found it difficult to claim wins recently, alternating between wins and draws in their last five games across all competitions.

However, Los Colchoneros remain strong favorites to progress from Group D into the knockout stages alongside Italian giants Juventus. They have lived up to expectations so far in the competition, sitting atop the standings, edging their Italian counterparts on goal difference.

Atletico Madrid’s form on home turf needs mentioning, given they are yet to assume defeat on this ground this season. This is a phenomenal feat worth emulating and only very few teams can boast of similar achievements so far.

The visitors, Bayer Leverkusen, have seen a sharp decline in form in recent weeks following a strong start to the season. This recent rotten form has seen them emerge victorious in just two of their last seven games. Things are really going south for Bosz’s men at the moment.

Bayer Leverkusen have lost each of their two Champions League fixtures, the last of which was a humbling defeat at the hands of Juventus. It is worth noting that they have been in abysmal form in most of their trips this season, having lost two of their last four games on away soil.

Taking head-to-head stats into consideration, the visitors have never secured a win in any of their trips to this ground, placing the advantage well in the courts of the hosts.

Furthermore, Atletico Madrid’s frontline have been blunt in most of their recent clashes on this ground, failing to register a single goal against Real Madrid and Celta Vigo. The visitors have also found goals difficult to come by on away soil this season, having failed to hit the net in two of their last four trips.

Injured or Suspended Players:

Atletico Madrid: Sime Vrsaljko, João Félix, Stefan Savic.

Leverkusen: Leon Bailey, Mitchell Weiser, Charles Aránguiz, Daley Sinkgraven.

Taking all these stats into consideration and weighing our options, we will probably witness a low scoring game this week. A drab low-scoring draw is well on the cards, given the struggles both teams have had in front of goal in recent weeks.
