Atletico Madrid 6/4 to win away against Bayer Leverkusen
Competition: Champions League
Market: Atletico Madrid to win against Bayer Leverkusen
Odds: 6/4 @ Coral
Atletico Madrid may be the away side ahead of their Champions League second round clash against Bayer Leverkusen, but last season’s runners-up are notoriously solid in defence regardless of venue. The La Liga holders grind out results both in front of their own fans, and on their travels, and they certainly have the quality to see past Leverkusen.
Diego Simeone’s men were a surprise package to reach the final, but now many are backing the Spaniards to progress through the latter stages. They are much better than the Bundesliga opponents, but could settle for a draw. Atleti will be desperate to score an away goal to take into the second leg, but Leverkusen too will be hopnig to keep them quiet.
Simeone’s men have real quality in the side that can provide individual brilliance. Players such as Antoine Griezmann can turn the game with a flick of a switch, which is often the gameplan over 90 minutes. They keep the game level, and look to capitalise late in the match with a player than can provide such magic.
