Leverkusen vs Atlético

  • 1 - 0
  • Played



Leverkusen and Atletico de Madrid face of at Bayer Arena on this match of the first leg of the Champions League top 16.

Leverkusen comes into this game after ending second in group C with 10 points coming from three wins, one draw and two losses. The team’s form on the home championship is not the best though with only one win on their last 5 league games.

On the other side, Atletico was first on group A with 13 points (4 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss). Despite some inconsistent performances, the team comes into this match at full strength which could make all the difference.

The head-to-head history shows total balance between the teams. 2 draws on both games played.

Analysis of Bayer Leverkusen

Leverkusen’s most dangerous man is Bellarabi. The German plays on the win where he tries to contribute to his team´s attacking game through lightning quick raids and precise crosses. He is also Bayer’s best scorer with 9 goals.

Another key player is Calhanoglu which, despite not being at his best on the last few games, has a tremendous passing capability, essential in creating spaces and scoring opportunities for his teammates. He is also a magnificent set piece taker.

Bayer’s weak point are their attack > defence transition. When the team loses possession it has some trouble recuperating efficiently, making some mistakes caused by numeric inferiority.

Coach Roger Schmidt will probably use a 4-2-3-1 tactic privileging ball possession, quick attacks and offensive set pieces.

Probable Starting Squad: Leno; Donati, Papadopoulos, Spahic, Wendell; Rolfes, Castro, Bellarabi, Calhanoglu, Son; Drmic.
Coach: Roger Schmidt

Confirmed Lineup: B. Leno, K. Papadopoulos, R. Hilbert, E. Spahić, Wendell, K. Bellarabi, G. Castro, L. Bender, J. Drmic, H. Çalhanoğlu, Heung-Min Son.
Coach: R. Schmidt.

Analysis of Atlético Madrid

The visiting team comes into this game practically at full strength. It is to be expected however, that Tiago and Koke will not be a part of the starting eleven which will probably force Simeone to integrate Mario Suarez on the mid field.

The team’s most important players will be no doubt Griezmann up front with is great ability to pierce defences with skill and speed.
He will be supported by a very dynamic midfield with Gabi, Suarez, Turan and Niguez; the first two, constructing and balancing the team’s game, the latter two, supporting the forward players.

Simeone will probably play using a 4-4-2 tactic, privileging ball possession, organized attacking football and fast break opportunities.

Probable Starting Squad: Moyá; Juanfran, Miranda, Godín, Siqueira; Níguez, Gabi, Tiago; Turan; Griezmann, Mandzukic.
Coach: Diego Simeone

Confirmed Lineup: Moyà, João Miranda, Juanfran, D. Godín, Guilherme Siqueira, A. Turan, Saúl, Gabi, Tiago, A. Griezmann, M. Mandžukić.
Coach: D. Simeone.

Betting suggestion:

The most likely scenario for this game will be Atletico not losing. We believe that Simeone’s squad has everything it needs to not lose this match, they are on their best form so far, with their high pressure football no doubt being able to stifle Leverkusen’s attack attempts.
