Atletico Madrid defender Luis Perea and Bayer Leverkusen forward Patrick Helmes fight for the ball

Europa League: Bayer Leverkusen 1 – 1 Atlético

It was slippery, it was ice cold and it was, quite literally, unwatchable. Atlético took on a snow storm and hosts Bayer Leverkusen tonight, hoping to qualify for the next round of the Europa League. But a 1-1 draw in the BayArena and a 2-0 win for Aris meant that the reigning champions finish third in Group B and are knocked out in the first round of the cup competition.

Europa League: Atlético 1 – 1 Bayer Leverkusen

Atlético Madrid are still without a win in this season’s Europa League after a 1-1 draw with Bayer Leverkusen at the Vicente Calderón on Thursday night. Los Rojiblancos can have no complaints about the result after a very poor first half display.

Match preview: Atlético vs. Leverkusen

Tomorrow at 8:00 UTC+1 Atlético kick off against Bayer Leverkusen in their second Europa League group game. The holding champions lost to Aris (1-0) two weeks ago, while the Germans convincingly beat Rosenborg. Atlético need to bounce back after the disappointing defeat, but Leverkusen will be no pushovers.

While the media and some of the optimistic fans among us have been talking up our title chances, the coming period will show us where we’re really at. We take a look ahead.
