of this Champions League semi-final tie. Atletico’s opportunity to avenge their defeats at the hands of Real Madrid in two Champions League finals since 2014 are bleak after conceding three without registering an all-important away goal.While this encounter looks likely to be the last ever European match played at Atletico’s Vicente Calderon stadium, they will be determined to give their supporters something to shout about by making amends for their poor display at the Bernabeu last week.
Atletico Madrid have built a reputation for gargantuan achievements under coach Diego Simeone and have not given up hope of a remarkable turnaround against Real Madrid in Wednesday’s Champions League semi-final second leg.Last week’s chastening 3-0 defeat at the Bernabeu left Atletico needing a repeat of their sensational 4-0 win over their fierce local rivals in La Liga in 2015 to prevent a fourth straight European defeat by Real side who have not lost by more than one goal this campaign.
Both sides come into the match on the back of domestic wins; however it is Zidane’s players in the better form, having won all four games since their 2-3 defeat in April’s El Clasico; scoring 15 goals in the process. Real are level on points with table topping Barcelona but have a game in hand, making them favourites for the league title and therefore may choose to rotate slightly, with Sunday’s visit of Sevilla in mind.
