Atlético de Madrid





The overall record between Bayer Leverkusen and Atlético Madrid is perfectly balanced with one win each and two draws, as well as three goals apiece. There have never been more than two goals scored in the four encounters between both sides.
However, their only previous Champions League knockout tie saw Atlético prevail (1-1 on aggregate, 3-2 on pens): it was in the 2014/15 round of 16.
Atlético Madrid have always progressed past the Champions League round of 16 under Diego Simeone (2013/14, 2014/15, 2015/16).
Bayer Leverkusen have reached the knockout stages for the fifth time in their last six Champions League campaigns. However, they haven’t progressed past the round of 16 since 2001/02 when they were beaten finalists.
In fact, Bayer Leverkusen have lost eight of their last nine Champions League knockout games (W1), their only win in that run coming against … Atlético Madrid (1-0, February 2015).
However, Bayer Leverkusen are unbeaten in their last eight Champions League games (W2 D6), their longest run without a defeat in the competition. Only Real Madrid are on a longer streak among current clubs (10 games).
Bayer Leverkusen have scored in all 11 of their Champions League home games against Spanish opposition.
Atlético Madrid have kept 25 clean sheets (in 42 games) in the Champions League since their return in 2013/14, more than any other club in that period.
Since the start of 2016, Atlético Madrid have never scored more than one goal away from home in the Champions League (6 games).
Four of Atlético Madrid’s five wins in the Champions League this season have been by one clear goal.
Antoine Griezmann is involved in 54% of Atlético’s Champions League goals since last season, scoring 10 and assisting three of his side’s 24 goals.
Javier Hernandez has only scored one goal in six Champions League games this season; he’d scored five in as many games last season.
