Atletico Madrid 2-1

Atletico Madrid vs Bayer Leverkusen Predictions

  • Atletico must win their final two games in order to guarantee progression.
  • Bayer Leverkusen have lost by multi-goal margins in their last three away games.
  • Atletico are unbeaten in 11 straight home games against German opposition (W8, D3).

Mission: possible begins here for Atletico

Club Brugge have incredibly taken this group by storm and as such, they’ve left the typically ‘bigger’ clubs floundering in behind for second place. Atletico and Leverkusen are the sides at the bottom of the standings but it is Diego Simeone’s men who still hold the key to their own fate, with a trip to Porto waiting after this.

All of Atletico’s four-point haul in this group were earned at home, but they have posted a rather hot and cold set of results in all competitions here this term (W3,, D2, L2). Perhaps inspiring confidence amongst the hosts though is the fact that they’ve not fallen here to German opposition in the last 26 years!

Led by ex-Real Madrid legend Xabi Alonso, Leverkusen could leapfrog Atletico with victory here, although their fate would remain out of their own hands with their final game coming against a Brugge side that they cannot catch. Alonso has endured a tough start to life in senior management (W1, D1, L2), and faces yet another tough test here.

Leverkusen can grab a goal in defeat

Leverkusen’s away form makes for miserable reading, they’ve not won on their travels since a convincing 3-0 win at Mainz back in August, but that remains their sole travelling win this season.

The Eternal Bridesmaids conceded 11 times across their last three away trips, suggesting that they could be in for a run around in Madrid. However, the fact that they’ve scored seven goals in four games under Alonso highlights that their somewhat improved frontline can at least grab a goal here.

All in all, we’re going for the experience and class of Diego Simeone’s Atletico Madrid to win the day with BTTS further boosting the price. As for the correct score, a rather conservative 2-1 could be the smart play as Atletico edge into their final crunch clash.
