Bayer Leverkusen News and Form
It has been a fruitless campaign for Leverkusen so far. In their one home game, they suffered a 2-1 reverse against Lokomotiv Moscow back on Matchday One. They then suffered back to back defeats against Juventus and Atletico without getting on the scoresheet. In the last two rounds of the UEFA Champions League group stage, both teams have scored in just one of the four games played in Group D.
So Leverkusen need to come up with a win in this one to keep their already slim qualification hopes alive. This is the first time back for them in the UEFA Champions League since the 2016/17 campaign. In all but one of their last eight Champions League campaigns, Leverkusen have qualified for the knockouts. It probably won’t happen in this one. The Germans have taken one win in their last seven home games in the UCL (D4 L2). In their last 13 European home games, the Werkself have taken a W4 D7 L2 record.

Atletico Madrid News and Form
Atletico Madrid have won their last two games in the group, following their opening draw against Juventus. The Spaniards took a 1-0 home win over Leverkusen on Matchday Three, which means that their two wins in this group have both been with a clean sheet. In last season’s group stage campaign, Atletico only managed to win one of their three away games (D1 L1) and their routine 2-0 win at Lokomotiv Moscow on Matchday Two in this campaign snapped their winless streak.
They still have to pay a visit to Juventus in this campaign. Atletico Madrid have only suffered three defeats in their last 12 European road games, winning four of those. Overall home and away they taken only three losses in their last 25 European fixtures (W16 D6) which has been a fantastic return. Their record in Germany is not as good though as they have lost all but one of their last five games there. The one game that they didn’t lose in that sequence of games in Germany was at Leverkusen in 2017.
