Atletico Madrid go into the fifth gameweek third in Group B, two points behind second-placed Porto with two matches to play. It hasn’t been a good campaign for Atletico in Europe so far but they do still have their destiny in their own hands. Two wins from their final two matches will be enough to secure passage to the last 16 but Diego Simeone’s men have certainly made it hard for themselves.

The Spanish side opened the group stage with a dramatic victory over Porto thanks to two injury-time goals either side of a penalty, with Antoine Griezmann scoring the winner in the 101st minute. However, that has been Atletico’s only victory of the Champions League so far, with Simeone’s side following it up with defeats to Bayer Leverkusen and Club Brugge, with a draw against the latter too.

Bayer Leverkusen, meanwhile, enter the fifth gameweek bottom of Group B but they are by no means out of contention of reaching the last 16. Things aren’t as straight forward for the German side, however, who must beat Atletico Madrid and Club Brugge while also hoping Porto drop points in both of their remaining matches.

Like Atletico, Leverkusen have won just one of their four games so far, beating the Spanish side 2-0 in the reverse fixture. It came after a 1-0 defeat to Club Brugge, though it appears that wasn’t the shock result many called it to be given how the Belgian side have dominated this group. Leverkusen also lost back-to-back matches against Porto without scoring, in fact their only two goals in the Champions League this season have come against Atletico.
