Juventus goes for its first win of the Champions League group stage when it hosts Bayer Leverkusen on Tuesday on Matchday 2. Juve opened up the cup with a 2-2 draw at Atletico Madrid, blowing a 2-0 lead two weeks ago. Leverkusen was stunned at home by Lokomotiv Moscow 3-1, putting them in a tough spot likely needing a point here to feel good about their chances of moving on.

Here’s how you can watch the match and what to know:

Storylines

Juventus: Cristiano Ronaldo and Paulo Dybala are both playing really well, especially together. That’s a dangerous combination that Leverkusen may not be able to handle. Expect plenty of balls wide and for Ronaldo to battle with Jonathan Tah all night long.

Bayer Leverkusen: Well, they at least responded well to that loss on Matchday 1. They’ve beaten Union Berlin and Ausburg since, while not conceding a goal. They’ll need to be even better here ahead of a brutal stretch that includes RB Leipzig, Eintracht Frankfurt and Atletico Madrid all coming after this one.

Prediction

Cristiano Ronaldo and Paulo Dybala are on the scoresheet in a comfortable victory.

Pick: Juventus 3, Bayer Leverkusen 0
