Atletico Madrid v Bayer Leverkusen Betting Special: Back Torres to slot in seamlessly for Gameiro

ShareClose Comments
The visitors need to score three times to have any hope of going through, while Atletico generally find the back of the net when playing at home

The first leg of this tie brought six goals from six different scorers, although the standout player from Atletico will be missing for the second game.

Kevin Gameiro was exceptional at the Bay Arena scoring Atleti's third from the penalty spot and generally proving a constant threat. The Frenchman, however, is injured for the visit of the Germans to the Spanish capital and in his place should start Fernando Torres.

The former Liverpool striker is offered at 6/4 (2.50) to get on the scoresheet anytime, and Torres scored the fourth and potential crucial goal for Atletico in the first leg.

While the 32-year-old is far from prolific, he has scored four goals in seven games and could be worthy of consideration in the anytime goalscorers market which is led by Antoine Griezmann at 9/10 (1.90).

Griezmann has five goals in his last five games and four goals in the Champions League this term including one in Leverkusen three weeks ago. With a big league game coming up at the weekend against Sevilla a healthy 4-2 advantage from the first leg, Atletico coach Diego Simeone might be tempted to rotate some players, and it remains to be seen who will be in the starting XI for Los Rojiblancos.

Yannick Carrasco will be pushing for a starting berth and is offered at 7/4 (2.75) to score anytime while Saul Niguez - the man who opened the scoring in the first-leg - can be backed at 11/4 (3.75).

For the visitors, Javier Hernandez remains their biggest goal threat and the former Real Madrid striker knows all about scoring against Atletico in the Champions League.

Chicharito scored the winning goal against Atleti for their city rivals in the quarter-finals of the competition two years ago. He is priced at 2/1 (3.00) to find the back of the net, while German international forward Kevin Volland can be backed at 11/4 (3.75) and veteran striker Stefan Kiessling is offered at 3/1 (4.00).

Fernando Torres to score at anytime at 6/4 (2.50) for a 1pt stake with bet365
