Atletico vs Bayer Prediction 15 March 2017

Tournament: Champions League
Location: Vicente Calderon Stadium
Match date: 15.03.2017 at 19:45

On March 15 2017 at 19:45 in the regular second leg game of the Champions League round of 16 in Madrid at the Vicente Calderon Stadium the local Atletico play against Bayer.

The victory against Granada in the latest games and the loss of their rivals Sevilla let Atletico shorten the distance to the third position to make it five points now. In general, Atletico look usually strong in the current season and their leader Antoine Griezmann manages to score in almost every game he plays. In the first leg game Atletico didn't have any possession advantage, yet their counterattacks let them score four goals.

As for Bayer, they are not in their best conditions in the current season at all. They are now in the middle of the standings of the national elite division. Anyway, they are just four points below the Europa League zone, so they still have chances to finfish the season in it. In the first leg game Bayer had an advantage in possession, yet their unreliable defense let their competitors score four goals. So, two goals Bayer scored in the home game don’t let them be very optimistic about their making it to the next stage. Moreover, Atletico are usually very reliable in defense in the home matches this season.

The upcoming game will be the sixth one played between the teams. We must remind you that Atletico have never lost to Bayer at home. Considering the conditions of Bayer and the results of their previous matches in Madrid, we think that the visitors are the outsiders of the upcoming game. We don’t think that Atletico will be trying just to avoid conceding goals; they will also try to win at home with their fans watching. That’s why we think that Atletico are likely to win again in the upcoming second leg game.
