Bayer Leverkusen News and Form – Can Bayer beat group winners Juve?

Leverkusen have a shot at qualification still. For that to happen they would have to put three points on the board in this fixture. Their destiny is not solely in their hands, however. They have to win their match and hope that Atletico Madrid don’t beat bottom side Lokomotiv Moscow on the night. Leverkusen started this campaign with three straight defeats. But they have put together a late surge to get things going. It started with a 2-1 home success over Atletico before beating Moscow 2-0.

The Werkself have taken a draw in half of their last 14 European home games, winning two. So they are a tough side to beat at home. The last time they played host to an Italian side they played out a thrilling 4-4 draw against Roma back in the 2015 group stage. Their overall home record against Italian visitors is W4 D2 L3 and they have won three of their last five such matches (D1 L1). They have nothing to lose in this one as they will head to the Europa League if things don’t pan out.

Juventus News and Form – The Old Lady to take a night off?

With a group win already under the bag, it’s not likely that Juve will have a lot of interest in this fixture. They are on a four-match winning streak in the competition at the moment and that started with their 3-0 home success over Leverkusen. They were running on a four-match winless streak away from home in Europe before locking in a win at Lokomotiv Moscow in their last road game. Their other away game in this group stage campaign saw them play out a 2-2 draw with Atletico Madrid.

Juventus collected their first win in five games against German opposition when they beat Leverkusen earlier in the group (D3 L1). The last time they went to Germany they were up against Bayern Munich in the 2015/16 quarter-finals and lost in extra time. Juventus have picked up only one win in their last seven visits to Bundesliga opposition (D2 L4). All but one of their group stage games in this campaign have ended up over 2.5 goals.

Bayer Leverkusen vs Juventus Predictions

Leverkusen to win: The home win is just worth a flutter in this one. The Germans have to go for broke in this one as they have nothing to lose and everything to gain. Juventus are not likely to be at full strength for a meaningless game on their end. Home win.
