Atletico Madrid hosts Bayer Leverkusen in round 3 of the Champions League group stage. The match will be played on Tuesday, October 22nd at Wanda Metropolitano (Madrid)
Atletico Madrid, under the supervision of an Argentine coach Diego Simeone, has been at a very good level for many years in a row both in Spanish LaLiga and in European Cup battles. WNt so long ago, the Mattress Makers reached the final of the UEFA Champions League several times + won the Europa League and the Super Cup of the Old World! As for the current Champions League, Atletico is also not likely to get lost - it gained 4 points in 2 previous games with Italian Juventus (a 2-2 draw at home) and Russian Lokomotiv (a 2-0 win away). At the same time, I would like to note the real fighting temper of the Spaniards, who saved in a seemingly hopeless match with the Turin team, losing to it (0:2) several minutes before the end of the meeting.

As for German Bayer, it is failing in the ongoing Champions League so far, having lost in both starting rounds of Group D. And if the thumping 0:3 defeat in the away match with Juventus can somehow be attributed to a serious brand of Italian “Zebras”, the home loss (1:2) in a duel with Moscow Loko cannot be justified so easily. It was a real fiasco because the Russian team hasn’t gained victories on foreign pitches of the Champions League since 2002!
By the way, the Leverkusen team didn’t impress even in the last match of the German Bundesliga, where they screwed up once again, having lost to Eintracht Frankfurt with a 0:3 score. I think Bayer will also have serious problems in the match against experienced Spanish Atletico Madrid.
Prediction for the match: Atletico Madrid to win
