Atletico Madrid Vs Bayer Leverkusen
Atletico have two enormous home matches to contend with in the next week and will be desperate to secure two huge home wins.
Atletico welcome Bayer Leverkusen on Wednesday night and enjoy a solid two goal advantage from the first leg, after picking up a superb 4-2 win over the tough German outfit in their last meeting. Atletico showed their undoubted European pedigree in that match, and whilst the side have probably not been at their absolute best this year they will be hoping to win through to the next round of the UCL at the very least. This match is followed by another tricky test at home to Sevilla, but two wins this week could turn Madrid’s season around.
Leverkusen have hardly set the world alight in the Bundesliga this season and will probably be slightly dissapointed with the way things have gone so far this year. The side now find themselves without a win in four matches having lost three and drawn one, and will be desperate to get a result in this one on Wednesday. However, with form and performances so poor at the moment, you really do not fancy them to do it.
As mentioned the previous meeting between these two matches ended in an exciting 4-2 win for the Spanish giants, a result that may well be enough to see the side through. The game was a real back and forth affair though with Atletico racing into a 2-0 lead, before Leverkusen pulled one back. Atletico made it 3-1 before a Savic own goal gave the German outfit hope. However, up stepped Fernando Torres to put the tie out of sight.
Home win for me in this one. Leverkusen have not got what it takes to win through in this one and I fancy Atletico to stick another couple of goals past them. Double the home win and both sides to score with Torres to get his second of the tie at anytime. The former Liverpool man still has what it takes to put sides to the sword and will be keen to show that in this one on Wednesday. The very best of luck and please be sure to enjoy the game, it could well be a cracker.
