Atletico Madrid vs. Bayer Leverkusen: What to watch for

Atletico Madrid got a goal from Diego Costa on Saturday, but let in a goal to break a string of 650 scoreless minutes, settling for a 1-1 draw with Valencia. The match, and the subsequent Sunday results, left Los Colcheneros fifth in La Liga as Barcelona won and Real Madrid suffered a shocking loss to RCD Mallorca. Alvaro Morata and Joao Felix will have to click better as goals have been hard to come by for the squad, even as it’s done exceptionally well at keeping them out.

Bayer, meanwhile, lost 3-0 to last year’s Europa League semifinalists, Eintracht Frankfurt, to drop to ninth in the Bundesliga standings. That’s not the team’s only 3-0 loss of late—they lost by the same margin in Champions League play to Juve last time. Look for Kevin Volland, who has scored for Bayer in three of its last four domestic matches, to test Atleti’s defense. Also look for Charles Aranguiz, the veteran Chilean midfielder, to return from injury to bolster Die Werkself.
