Atletico Madrid Prediction – Can Atletico Madrid confirm 2nd place?

2nd placed Atletico Madrid were seemingly heading towards comfortable qualification for the knockout rounds of the Champions League as they were unbeaten in their first three matches of the group stages, having recorded wins against Lokomotiv Moscow and Bayer Leverkusen along with a draw against Juventus.

However, recent back-to-back defeats away from home at Bayer Leverkusen and Juventus have now put Wednesday night’s hosts on notice as they now seek one final win in order to secure their place in the knockout rounds along with Group D winners, Juventus.

The equation therefore is simple for tonight’s hosts; win this final match against Lokomotiv Moscow and regardless of the result between Bayer Leverkusen and Juventus, Atletico Madrid will have booked their place in the next phase of this competition.

With a strong sequence of results under their belts at their Estadio Wanda Metropolitano which consists of 6 wins out of their last 8 matches and includes notable wins against Roma, Borussia Dortmund, Juventus and Bayer Leverkusen, Atletico Madrid will be confident they can get across the line here.

Lokomotiv Moscow Prediction – Can Lokomotiv Moscow spoil Atletico’s party?

Despite a great start to their Champions League campaign with a 2-1 win away from home at German club, Bayer Leverkusen, in their Group D opener, visitors Lokomotiv Moscow have lost each of their subsequent four matches in the group to plummet down to bottom place and no prospect of even a place in the Europa League either.

Although they beat Leverkusen 2-1, the Germans repaid the compliment with a 2-0 win in the corresponding fixture meaning they have the edge on the head-to-head if Leverkusen and Lokomotiv finish on 6 points apiece.

The Russian outfit therefore have nothing left to play for and having suffered defeats to Atletico Madrid already, along with losses against Juventus home and away and the aforementioned Leverkusen loss, they are well and truly out of the competition after this Matchday 6 clash.

Having lost 10 of their last 12 matches overall in the Champions League and 10 of their last 14 away ties in the competition too, this looks a tall order for Lokomotiv Moscow on Wednesday night.
