Bayer Leverkusen’s hopes of a successful European campaign are already looking precarious and they cannot afford to lose both of their upcoming back-to-back matches against Atletico Madrid.
The German club will always have realised they were third favourites in Champions League Group D and therefore most likely to drop into the Europa League after Christmas – but even achieving that is starting to resemble an uphill struggle.
Die Werkself were immediately on the back foot as they suffered a shock opening 2-1 defeat at home to Lokomotiv Moscow and then, more predictably, were beaten 3-0 by Juventus – who sit joint top of the standings on four points with Atletico.
