Both Sides Struggling in Champions League Group B

On Brink of Elimination

Prior to the start of the Group Stage, Atletico Madrid was heavily favored to win Group B, but Los Colchoneros have failed to meet expectations. In fact, they’re one mix of results away from being eliminated.

Bayer Leverkusen is in the same situation, making this a do-or-die match for both and a must-watch game for all soccer enthusiasts.

As expected, Los Colchoneros dominate the Las Vegas odds thanks to a -135 price. However, they’ve suffered a bit more than expected when playing at home.

Let’s check the latest Champions League odds, stats, injury reports, and Champions League lines for Atletico Madrid vs Leverkusen. We’ve plenty of Champions League betting odds for you to consider.

Atletico Madrid: Boost of Confidence

Last Sunday, Atletico Madrid defeated Real Betis 2-1 on the road to climb up to third place in La Liga. Domestically, Los Colchoneros and Real Madrid are the only teams that haven’t lost in their last five games.

The best news is that both goals were scored by Antoine Griezmann, who’s finally getting into a rhythm after having a rough start to the season. The Frenchman has scored six goals, including one in the UCL.

Speaking of the UCL, Los Colchoneros are third in Group B with four points. They failed to defeat Club Brugge at Wanda Metropolitano in the last fixture, which is why they now have no other option than to win. If they lose or draw, and Porto defeats Club Brugge, it will be hasta la vista, baby.

Here’s another reason to consider including them in your soccer picks: Their roster depth is uncanny. Last Sunday, Rodrigo De Paul, Joao Felix, Matheus Cunha and Yannick Carrasco came off the bench while Felipe Augusto and Mario Hermoso didn’t play at all.

Considering all of the above, the -135 price they’re offering looks very tempting as you could win $100 per every $135 wagered on them.

Bayer Leverkusen: Nothing to Lose, Much to Gain

Bayern Leverkusen is 15th in the Bundesliga. Most recently, they drew 2-2 to Wolfsburg. Prior to that, they visited Frankfurt and lost 5-1. They played the last 20 minutes with one player less as Piero Hincapie was sent off, but still.

Regarding the UCL, the Black and Reds are last in Group B with three points. Their only victory was over Atletico Madrid (more on that later), while they lost their last two games against FC Porto. The biggest concern is that they weren’t even able to score (5-0 aggregate).

Besides the fact that they’re in a must-win situation, the visitors will have Jeremie Frimpong back for Wednesday’s game. Frimpong, who’s considered one of the best right-backs in the world, missed their last match due to suspension. Despite being a defender, Frimpong has scored five goals in the Bundesliga.

The German side comes in as the betting online underdogs thanks to a +400 price, meaning you could win $400 per every $100 wagered on them. They own a 1-1-6 record when playing on the road in all competitions, but again, it’s do-or-die for them.

Atletico Madrid vs Leverkusen Head-to-Head

  • Previous Matches: 9
  • Atletico Madrid Victories: 3 (9 goals)
  • Bayer Leverkusen Victories: 3 (9 goals)
  • Draws: 3

The first leg was a close contest that Bayer Leverkusen ended up winning 2-0. It was close because Robert Andrich scored the opener in the 84th minute. Moussa Diaby increased the advantage three minutes later. Curiously enough, the referee showed only three yellow cards, all to the home side. It’s curious because Los Colchoneros are well known for being a physical team.

They also met in the Group Stage of the 2019-20 edition. The game in Madrid finished with a 1-0 victory for Atletico. Alvaro Morata scored the winning goal in the second half. The Black and Reds have never beaten Los Colchoneros on the road.

Atletico Madrid vs Leverkusen Prediction

I didn’t forget. Atletico Madrid has suffered a bit more than expected when playing at home. Most recently, they drew 1-1 to Rayo Vallecano. Prior to that, they drew 0-0 to Club Brugge and defeated Girona 2-1. That being said, there’s no doubt that they’re the better team and that momentum is on their side. Plus, Griezmann is finally enjoying life again, making him one of the best strikers out there. Therefore, I think Los Colchoneros will win in a close contest, so go ahead and include them in your soccer betting ticket.
