Bayer Leverkusen hosts Atletico Madrid in round 4 of the Champions League group stage. The match will be played on Wednesday, November 6th at BayArena (Leverkusen)
Bayer pulled out the last ticket to the Champions League in the last season of Bundesliga, having taken fourth place. The club’s weak defense was very memorable. That defense was the weakest among the teams that were in the first half of the standings. In the new season, Bayer significantly lowered its level. In the Champions League, it started right away from the group stage, where it got a strong group. The team has already played three matches but failed to win in any of them. As a result, it takes the last line in its group. In the first round, Bayer met with Lokomotiv Moscow and suffered the first defeat with a 1:2 score. By the way, it was the only Euro Cup match, in which the Germans managed to score. More precisely, even not to score but to write a goal to the team’s account. After all, the football player of the Moscow club scored an own goal. In the second match, Bayer received a devastating defeat from Juventus (0:3), and the last game ended with a loss to Atletico (0: 1). As for the new season of the national championship, the results of the club are also not encouraging. The team is in the middle of the standings, as it managed to gain only four victories. The last match in the Bundesliga was lost to Borussia Monchengladbach with a 1-2 score.

Atletico seems to put the Spanish championship on pause while participating in the Champions League. The team draws every second match, so as not to risk much. It does it very well. Let’s recall that Atlético was the best in defense among all the teams in the last season. That is why a team can keep draws like no one. Currently, the club is in fourth place in LaLiga. It has five victories, six draws, and one defeat. The Mattress Makers remained excellent in defense. But the club is not particularly active in the attack and scores the very minimum. The team played the last match against Sevilla a few days ago. The winner in that match could not be determined. Teams tied - 1: 1. So, we can say that Atletico has no problems in the national championship. As for the Champions League, special barriers to further advancement are also not visible. The Spaniards are on a par with Juventus but occupy the second position because the Italians scored more. Atletico played the first match with the Italian club. Then the teams drew with a 2:2 score. Then the Spaniards easily coped with Lokomotiv (2:0) and Bayer (1:0).
Bookmakers believe that both teams have equal chances to win. The last-to-head match was held in Spain, where the hosts won with a minimum score. But it does not mean that the team did it with difficulties. Atlético is not an attacking team, but it is likely to beat the Germans once again.
Prediction for the match: Atletico Madrid to win
