Bayer Leverkusen are finding the first three points in Europe this season as they take on Spanish giants Atletico Madrid on Tuesday. The Bundesliga side were in for a shocker when Club Brugge beat them 1-0 away from home last week. It took the entire group by surprise, consisting of Atletico and the Portuguese Liga NOS team, Porto. Porto and Atletico played out a fantastic game at the Wanda Metropolitano, but as expected the result went in favour of Diego Simeone's eleven (2-1). With qualification on the line, Leverkusen will be attempting to get a few points on board so that they do not face the heat going into the last three matchdays of the Champions League group stage.

Bayer vs Atletico Betting Tips: Away / Under 2.5

Atletico Madrid have consistently shown the pattern of playing a closed game whenever they take an away trip in Europe. Their previous meetings with Leverkusen, as rare as they may seem, have also ended in under 2.5 goals being scored. But with no clean sheet in either of their last 3 matches (for both sides), a goalless draw seems out of the contention here. We believe that Atletico will take advantage of Leverkusen's poor morale of no wins in their last 3 games and play on the counter. Our prediction is Atletico picking up an early lead and then holding onto the advantage to end the game with a 1-0 win. Multiple betting opportunities emerge from this equation - Under 2.5 goals, an away win and BTTS-No.

Bayer Leverkusen Team News

Leverkusen's forwards have struggled to make a mark, but this has led to goals coming in from unusual positions and players. Kerem Demirbay from the double pivot and full-back Jeremie Frimpong are leading the charts with combined 4 goal contributions this season in the Bundesliga. Regarding creativity, Moussa Diaby leads the way with 3 key passes on average every game, out of which his Leverkusen teammates eventually take at least one shot on goal. Jonathan Tah, who was linked with an English Premier League move earlier this summer, has been the club's best defender with 1.8 interceptions per game, which is 0.5 more than any other player in the camp. Demirbay, Frimpong, Diaby and Tah are our players to watch.

Atletico Madrid Team News

Contrary to Leverkusen's numbers, Atletico's forwards have been firing consistently. Though they sit sixth in La Liga and have failed to win 2 of their last 6 games, both Alvaro Morata and Joao Felix have been banging goals or creating them with ease. The duo combines for a contribution to 6 of Atletico's 9 goals scored this season, which is commendable. Thomas Lemar has been wonderful in creating chances for the forwards, as the Frenchman makes an average of 2 key passes every game to open up the defence. The best defender in the Atletico Madrid team for the last many years now, Jose Gimenez still ranks at the very top with an average of 1.7 interceptions every 90 minutes. Morata, Lemar and Gimenez will be our three players to keep an eye on.
