Atletico Madrid to Win
While Atletico Madrid is far from being at their best so far this season, they have solid results overall. On the other hand, Leverkusen is struggling across the board and they enter this game in poor form.
With that in mind, we can see Atletico winning this game. They are the better team on paper, they have more experience in Europe, and they are in better form, so we expect them to take the three points that will increase their chances of making the next stage.
Under 2.5 Total Goals
The first duel between Atletico Madrid and Leverkusen in Germany ended with a 2-0 win for the home team, so we only saw two goals in that match. We don't see more than two goals being scored in this game either.
After all, Leverkusen has gone under in three of their four matches in Champions League this season and the same goes for Atletico Madrid as well.

Atletico Madrid vs Leverkusen Preview: Possible Lineups, Team News, and Form
We expect this to be a very close match between two good teams, so let's take a closer look at these teams before this duel:
Although Atletico Madrid is currently third in the standings in Group B of Champions League, things can change in the last two rounds since they are just two points behind Porto right now. Meanwhile, Los Colchoneros have done well in La Liga recently, with four wins and one draw in the last five games, which helped them climb to the third place in the standings.
The team will once again be without injured Thomas Lemar, Koke and Marcos Llorente, but they don't have any fresh concerns.
Atletico Madrid Predicted Lineup:
Oblak – Reinildo, Savic, Gimenez, Molina – Carrasco, Kondogbia, Witsel, Correa – Morata, Griezmann
While Bayer Leverkusen has just three points in their Champions League group after four rounds, they still have a chance to get to the next stage, as slim as it is. However, the team has also struggled in Bundesliga so far, winning just nine points from the first eleven rounds, so it's tough to envision them suddenly getting into great form.
Meanwhile, Exequiel Palacios, Karim Bellarabi, and Sardar Azmoun remain on the sidelines once again through injuries, while Patrick Schick is questionable, but more likely to play than miss out.
Leverkusen Predicted Lineup:
Hradecky – Bakker, Hincapie, Tah, Tapsoba, Frimpong – Andrich, Demirbay – Diaby, Schick, Hudson-Odoi
