Bayer Leverkusen vs Juventus match in Group D should be interesting because Bayer Leverkusen must win to have the opportunity to qualify for the qualifying stages. Here is good and bad news for the home team.
The good news is that they face Juventus that has already qualified and should put a weakened side. The bad news is that the second place team at Atlético de Madrid is home to Lokomotiv Moscow, the weakest team in the group and if Atlético as expected wins, it doesn’t matter what Leverkusen will do on Wednesday night.
Leverkusen will always win and BayArena will be full and the atmosphere is excellent. It will not be a surprise to see Leverkusen be the favorite to win, since Juventus is already classified.
Leverkusen beat Atlético de Madrid at home, but surprisingly lost to Lokomotiv, which is Lokomotiv’s only victory in the group. This defeat is what put Leverkusen in this nervous position.
Juventus is in first place with 13 points and six points ahead of Atlético. Coach Maurizio Sarri will surely put a second-tier majority team for this match, which is a deadly match for the Italians.
Juventus lost for the first time in Serie A this weekend by losing 3-1 to Lazio. Away from his home in Europe, Juventus beat Lokomotiv in a tight match that ended 2-1 and drew 2-2 against Atletico.
