THE TEAM NEWS

LOKOMOTIV MOSCOW

  • Lokomotiv Moscow have lost their last three Champions League games but victory here would guarantee them at least third place in Group D.

Doubtful: Corluka (Injured), Ignatyev (Injured)

BAYER LEVERKUSEN

  • Bayer Leverkusen will be hoping to build on their 2-1 win at home to Atletico Madrid three weeks ago as they bid to maintain their chances of finishing in the top two with a win here.
  • Leon Bailey is set to return to the side having served a domestic suspension at the weekend but Nadiem Amiri is suspended following his red card against Atletico.
  • Right-back Mitchell Weiser has been ruled out for the rest of the year after sustaining an injury against Freiburg on Saturday while Kai Havertz is expected to miss out again.

THE PREDICTION

Bayer Leverkusen have lost both their away outings in this Champions League campaign without scoring but they now face a Lokomotiv side who have registered just one clean sheet in their last 15 games in the competition. Both teams need the points so do not expect this one to end goalless.
