Leverkusen vs Atletico Madrid, Prediction, H2H, Team Betting Odds, and Team News- UEFA Champions League 2022/23

Another thrilling Champions League match-up as Leverkusen host Atletico Madrid.

The UEFA Champions League is back in action with another round of matches as Leverkusen vs Atletico Madrid is set to take place this Wednesday.

Leverkusen currently lies in the relegation zone and are in horrendous form both domestically and in Europe. The German club have lost 4 out of the 6 matches in the Bundesliga and began their Champions League campaign with a loss against Club Brugge. Considering the caliber of players Leverkusen possess, their current state of form is shocking and they need to turn things around quickly.

On the other hand, Atletico have been in a great run of form and come from a 4-1 win against Celta. In their previous Champions League clash, Atletico managed to pull through with a hard-fought 2-1 win against Porto. As of now, Diego Simeone’s side looks solid with their traditional defensive style of play and are not shy of scoring either.
