Atletico Madrid vs Bayer Leverkusen: Live stream, TV channel, kick-off time & where to watch
Atletico Madrid must win against Bayer Leverkusen in the UEFA Champions League at the Wanda Metropolitano on Wednesday to stay afloat in the competition. Diego Simeone's side are currently third in Group B with four points from an equal number of matches and if they once again leave the pitch without a win their chances of securing a place in the knockouts will further reduce. However, they still have their fate in their own hands as six points from their last two matches will see them through to the last 16.
Meanwhile, Leverkusen are struggling to find their rhythm this season as they have won just once in four matches in Champions League and are bottom of Group B. They also face a must-win game and any slip-up will cost them dearly. The two teams shared the spoils when they met earlier in the season and a similar result would hurt both of them.
GOAL brings you details on how to watch the game on TV in the U.S., UK. and India as well as how to stream live online.
