Juventus and Bayer Leverkusen both failed to win in the first match. They do not want that to happen again in the second fight. However, the wind of victory blew louder toward the host.
Juventus will host Bayer Leverkusen at the Allianz Stadium on Matchday 2 in Group D of the 2019/20 Champions League on Wednesday (2/10/2019).
On the first matchday at Atletico Madrid headquarters, Juventus virtually won. However, Juventus’ two-goal advantage through Juan Cuadrado and Blaise Matuidi can be countered by Atletico with two goals in the last 20 minutes of the match.
Juventus are less fortunate, but Leverkusen is more unlucky. Entertaining Lokomotiv Moscow, Peter Bosz’s troops were forced to surrender 1-2. Their only goal in the game was even obtained through the suicide of an opposing player.
After that first matchday, Juventus and Leverkusen both won all their matches in the league. Juventus won 2-1 in a row over Verona and Brescia, and 2-0 over SPAL. Victory over SPAL in Turin last weekend earned the team made by Maurizio Sarri goal by Miralem Pjanic and Cristiano Ronaldo’s header from assists Paulo Dybala.
