Roger Schmidt , coach of Bayer Leverkusen have Weakness: Defensive Transition in this game
The Bayer Leverkusen have conceded nine goals in the three most recent rounds of the Bundesliga does not seem a coincidence. It is a weakness of the German side that was evident from the first official match against Roger Schmidt at Bayer, and that Copenhagen 2-3 Leverkusen we try to ‘MI’ during the month of August . The Leverkusen neither advocates well as block, nor has first world-class defenders that can offset or balance collective failures . Indeed, perhaps his most talented defense is young Tin Jedvaj of 19 years, which has caused by injury in recent weeks.
In the absence of Croatian Jedvaj , Schmidt has placed his trust in Roberto Hilbert to take the right side. On the opposite side, the alternation has existed throughout the season between the Polish Sebastian Boenisch and Brazilian Wendell , although the latter seems to be slightly ahead in the plans of coach. Do not characterized precisely Leverkusen for their defensive solidity on the left flank, where Wendell has trouble concentrating and positioning, while Boenisch accuses his lack of agility or speed in one on one.
In central defense, absent the sanctioned Ömer Toprak, it is natural for Spahic and Greek Papadopoulos composing the central pair, the pair who have to deal with one of the front fitter continent: Mandzukic- Griezmann . If the French maintains its level in the last two months, the core of Bayer may have nightmares about Antoine. Press either the Bayer Leverkusen the ball out rival, but if you can overcome that line the path to the goal of Bernd Leno acquiesces .
No need to explain that front this time will be one of the groups most proficient passing game and slate in Europe: Atletico Madrid with Diego Godin , Joao Miranda and Mario Mandzukic main exponents. Whether in Germany or the Vicente Calderon hard to imagine a scenario in which over 180 minutes Atletico not have at least a couple of opportunities to hurt pieces .
