While Juventus already took an important 1st place and qualified to CL Playoffs, Bayer needs to do everything to take 2nd place in the group. Hosts show very strong and solid character so far, as they even after 3 defeats in a row took 2 wins and came back to 2nd place fight at the end of the Group stage.

This talented and interesting team can be one of the favourites fighting for top places this season in Bundesliga. After 14 rounds, hosts have 7 wins, 4 draws and only 3 defeats. Only Leipzig and Borussia Dortmund have 2 losses so far, so this is a great result for the weaker team from Leverkusen. They have a great opportunity to overtake one of the CL Favourites Atletico Madrid in the Playoffs race. Especially, Bayer took 2 very strong wins over the Schalke and Bayern Munich in the last games. So this team should be in very good shape at the moment.
The superb squad from Turin lost points in the last 2 games over Sassuolo and SS Lazio. The last game was very important for them as at the moment Internaziolae overtook them in a Serie A title race and have 2 points more standing at 1st place. Juve lost to hosts Lazio with 3:1 result and could win even with the bigger score, but Immobile failed to score a penalty at 79th minute. Juventus had created more attacks, but Lazio had more dangerous moments, which means that Juve failed to finish their attacks well. While Immobile had his 17th goal so far, Ronaldo scored the only 7th.
In UEFA Champions League, Juventus already qualified to Playoffs. Juve took an important win over Atletico Madrid and finished the great with needed result.
