Atletico Madrid Prediction – Can Atletico Madrid maintain top two spot?

Having suffered just 1 defeat out of their last 17 matches in all competitions, Tuesday night’s hosts, Atletico Madrid, will no doubt be eyeing off all three points when they play host to German club, Bayer Leverkusen, in this Matchday 3 clash at the Estadio Wanda Metropolitano.

Atletico Madrid sit joint top of Group D with Italian giants, Juventus, with both teams level on 4 points apiece, but with 3rd placed Lokomotiv Moscow just 1 point behind, Atletico Madrid will be eager to put some daylight between themselves and the Russian side with a win here this evening.

The hosts shared the points with Juventus with a 2-2 draw at home on Matchday 1 which was followed by a solid and valuable 2-0 win away from home in Russia against Lokomotiv Moscow which has given the Spanish club a good start to their Champions League campaign.

Recent form at home in this competition has also been strong as Atletico Madrid are unbeaten in their last 7 matches on home turf which includes 5 wins and 4 clean sheets. In addition, Atletico Madrid are unbeaten in their previous 3 meetings at home against the German visitors.

Bayer Leverkusen Prediction – Can Bayer Leverkusen make up ground?

It’s been a nightmare start to this Champions League campaign for visitors, Bayer Leverkusen, as the German outfit have suffered defeats in each of their first two matches in Group D and accordingly sit bottom of the group with zero points to their name.

A 2-1 defeat at home to Lokomotiv Moscow on Matchday 1 wasn’t the best of starts but this loss was further compounded when they were handed a heavy 3-0 defeat away at Juventus, and another tough fixture is on the agenda tonight in Madrid when they come up against a well organised Atletico Madrid outfit.

With just 2 wins out of their last 15 ties in the Champions League, Bayer Leverkusen are likely to have their work cut out in this difficult clash, especially when you consider that the German club have also managed just 1 away win out of their last 11 ties on their travels in this competition.

The visitors have also failed to score in 5 of these last 11 away matches at this level too which could be another factor in determining the outcome of this encounter in Madrid.
