Bayer Leverkusen vs Atletico Madrid 13.09.2022
Tuesday sees the 2nd round of the Champions League get underway, and it’s a clash between two teams who have had very different starts to their respective campaigns.
Home team Leverkusen have had a dreadful start to both Bundesliga and European campaigns this season, with their last competitive game ending in a 2-2 draw with Hertha Berlin. They currently sit at the bottom of Group B with no point to show for their first UCL game against Club Brugge (1-0). They are also second from bottom in the Bundesliga with just one win from six matches. With this plagued inconsistency, Gerardo Seoane and his side will need to step it up if they are to get something from this fixture.
Atletico Madrid, meanwhile, head into this match with a great record so far, having won 3 of their first 5 La liga matches (3W, 1D, 1L) and their Champions League opener against FC Porto. Atletico Madrid are coming off a 4-1 victory against Celta Vigo in front of their home fans and has found the net in all but one of their last 6 matches in all competitions. With this form, Diego Simeone will fancy another win at BayArena on Tuesday.
This could be another long night for the Germans facing the in-form Atletico Madrid, and we anticipate Simeone’s side to get a positive result on Tuesday.
