Juventus gave up a two-goal lead versus Atlético Madrid on Champions League (CL) matchday one (2-2), but have won all three of their Serie A (SA) fixtures since, netting twice each time. All three victories saw the ‘Bianconeri’ score exactly once in each half, and keep a clean sheet in the last hour of play. The reigning Italian champions opened the scoring in their five CL home fixtures last season, but lost two of them by a 2-1 scoreline. They kept a clean sheet in the three victories though, which has also been the case in their previous five wins in this competition.
Bayer Leverkusen lost their opening CL fixture at home (1-2), but are unbeaten in their last five away games in this competition, keeping a first-half clean sheet in four of those fixtures. The last time they lost a CL away game though, was in Italy (Roma 3-2). The visitors have won both their league games ‘to nil’ since that opening CL loss, winning both those fixtures at half-time. Leverkusen have now won four of their six Bundesliga fixtures this season, netting a first-half opener in every victory. In fact they’ve scored 11 of their 16 competitive goals (68.75 %) this term before the break.
