Competition: Champions League
Market: Atletico Madrid to qualify
Odds: 5/4 @ Coral
Atletico Madrid travel to Real Madrid in the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final clash. They still have revenge on their mind following last season’s defeat to their fierce rivals in the final of the competition. Diego Simeone’s men are in a good position this time round too, earning a goalless draw at the Vicente Calderon, meaning any score draw will put them through this evening.
Real Madrid will be without key players for this evening’s fixture, with Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale ruled out of action for the Spaniards. It could prove to be costly, as the lack of a trusted centre-forward will make Atletico’s task all the more easier to get a result. Their job is simple tonight; stop Real from scoring, and try to nick a goal from a set piece or on the break when Los Blancos are vulnerable.
It’s worked for them to make it this far, and they put in a good second half performance against Real in the first leg to prove they can go toe-to-toe with the best in the world. As a result, Atletico Madrid being backed with odds of 5/4 from Coral to eliminate Real tonight from the competition, reaching the Champions League semi-finals in the process.
