Bayer Leverkusen kept alive its slim hopes of Champions League progress with a 2-0 win at Lokomotiv Moscow in its 100th game in the competition on Tuesday.An own-goal from Rifat Zhemaletdinov in the first half and a perfectly struck volley from Sven Bender in the second gave Leverkusen its second consecutive win after losing its first three games in Group D.“The win does us good Tierna Davidson Jersey , and it was important,” said Leverkusen sporting director Simon Rolfes, whose team is assured of at least third place and a Europa League spot.But it could be even more.Leverkusen has six points Christian Pulisic Jersey , one less than second-place Atlético Madrid, which lost 1-0 at already qualified Juventus later Tuesday.Leverkusen and Atletico will duel indirectly for second place in the group in the final round of games on Dec. 11, when Leverkusen hosts Juventus and Atlético welcomes Lokomotiv.Leverkusen was gifted an 11th-minute lead in Moscow after Portuguese forward Éder tried to clear the ball after a corner only to hit teammate Zhemaletdinov , who had no time to react to stop the ball rebounding into his own net.It meant three of Leverkusen’s four goals scored so far in the competition were own-goals.Leverkusen goalkeeper Lukas Hradecky made a reflex save to deny Anton Miranchuk an equalizer in the 26th after a mistake from Wendell presented the home side with its biggest chance.Kevin Volland missed another good opportunity for Leverkusen before the break, but Bender grabbed the visitors’ second goal 10 minutes into the second half when he scored with a volley inside the far corner after Charles Aranguiz lifted the ball over the defense. Real Madrid's coaching job is one of the most coveted in the world, but Antonio Conte can call himself one of the few men in the world who chose to turn down such an offer.The Italian boss confirmed once more that he was too close to join the team back in November Michael Bradley Jersey , but the fact that he would not be able to choose his players from scratch was decisive to make the deal fall apart.Speaking to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Conte went even further to reveal more details on why he chose to look elsewhere for employment."Real Madrid was too hot to handle back then. There was a big chance, but I'm not a fan of taking a job with the season already underway. I like to coach a team from the beginning of a season until the end. It was better for me not to take that job DeAndre Yedlin Jersey ," Conte said.The former Juventus and Chelsea boss denied being interested in coaching any team in the remaining months of the 2018-19 campaign."You will not see me coaching anywhere until the summer, that's for sure. There's been talk about an interest from Inter, but no one has gotten in touch with me or my agent. I'll sit down calmly to analyze any offers in due time ," Conte added.Conte has been out of a job since Chelsea sacked him in July to make way for Maurizio Sarri. The former Italy coach refused to talk about the Blues, since he believes that he does not have to re-live his tenure with the London-based club.
