With 4 points in their 2 opening games of this season's competition, Atletico Madrid will try to get a win tonight against Bayer Leverkusen. The Spanish side are in second place in Group D with the same points of Juventus due to goal difference of +2 against a +3 difference from the Italian Serie A Champions. Joao Felix wil not play in tonight's match as the Portuguese wonderkid left this weekend's home 1-1 draw against Valencia injured and will be absent in the next couple of weeks. Atletico are on an impressive run at home, unbeaten in the last 11 UEFA home matches.
