Bosz: 'Bayer will give best shot'

Bayer Leverkusen coach Peter Bosz admits his chances of reaching the Champions League Round of 16 are slim as they take on Juventus.

It kicks off on Wednesday at 20.00 GMT, with Juve already sure of top spot in the group, but the Germans and Atletico Madrid are still battling for second place.

“We will certainly make two changes tomorrow, but we have only 18 players available for selection,” said the coach in his press conference.

“We want to win, that is our ambition. We’re still behind in qualifying and unfortunately it’s going to be difficult for us. We know that we must win and then wait and see what happened in the other game.

“Atletico are up against Lokomotiv Moscow, and it would be very unusual for them to fall at the final hurdle.”

In order to reach the Round of 16, Bayer Leverkusen must beat Juventus and hope Atletico Madrid don't defeat Lokomotiv Moscow.
