Paulo Assuncao goes up for the ball against Bayer Leverkusen players in Europa League action

Match preview: Bayer Leverkusen vs. Atlético

Atlético Madrid could very easily find themselves dumped out of the Europa League on Thursday evening as they travel to Germany to take on group B leaders Bayer Leverkusen. Quique’s men need a helping hand from Norwegian outfit Rosenborg, who need to get at least a point at Aris for Atleti to have a realistic chance of qualifying.

Atlético to meet Leverkusen, Rosenborg and Aris

Europa League holders Atlético Madrid have been drawn in the same group as Bayer Leverkusen, Rosenborg and Aris Thessaloniki in the group stages of this season’s Europa League. It could have been a lot tougher for Atlético as we looked certain to be drawn with big-spenders Manchester City as they could only be placed in Groups A, B or C. Luckily they were drawn into Group A against Juventus, in perhaps the tie of the round.
