UEFA Champions League 2016-17: Atletico Madrid vs Bayer Leverkusen Match Preview

The first leg encounter between Atletico Madrid and Bayer Leverkusen ended with a scoreline of 4-2 with the team from the Spanish capital clinching a crucial away win. It will be really interesting to find out whether Bayer Leverkusen have the firepower to overturn the first leg deficit which is quite a big one if we take into consideration the fact that it was a home game for Bayer Leverkusen. For a place in the next round of the UEFA Champions League 2016-17 Bayer need to win the match with a scoreline of 3-0 at least that will neutralize the 4 away goals which Atletico Madrid have scored. It will be really difficult a task for the team from Germany but nothing is impossible in the game of football, and they can take inspiration from the Barcelona vs PSG encounter where Barca scored 6 goals in the return leg ensuring their place in the quarterfinals of the tournament.

Atletico Madrid, on the other hand, have been a big force when it comes to scoring against them on their home soil. And clearly, they are the favorites to go through to the next round. It hasn’t been a great season for Atletico Madrid in the domestic tournaments. And Diego Simeone and his boys will be looking forward to setting their campaign on track with a formidable performance on the biggest stage of football in Europe.

Atletico Madrid will be without the services of Gabi and Filipe Luis who are currently under suspension. Also, there are chances that Kevin Gameiro will miss out on a place in the first eleven for the match against Bayer Leverkusen. However, the team from the Spanish capital will be boosted by the return of Fernando Torres who has stayed out of action due to a head injury which he sustained a few days back. Other than this nothing much has been reported from the Atletico camp, and Diego Simeone will look forward fielding the best possible eleven tonight.

It will be real tough task ahead for the new manager Tayfun Korkut who has come in for just a few days. There are quite a few injury concerns in the team as the likes of Jonathan Tah, Stefan Kiessling and Toprak are all out due to injuries. Also, captain Lars Bender has been ruled out of the match against Bayer Leverkusen. The 17-year old – Kai Havertz will also be unavailable for selection as he has an examination at school. So it will be really a tough job for the newcomer to prevent a defeat at the hands of Atletico Madrid.
