Atletico Madrid made very good result in the Champions League this season after they reach the semi finals where they face Bayern Munich. In the Quarter-finals, Atletico Madrid eliminated FC Barcelona, but now they want more, they want to play in the final. Home side have already managed to reach the final of the this competition two years ago when they were defeated against Real Madrid and they are fully motivated to play another final. It won’t be an easy job, because they are playing against one of the main candidates for the title, but they know how to play matches like these and they have already showed that against Barcelona. Atletico also play very good in La Liga and they are still in a race for the title. The main strengths of home team is their defence. They have the best defence in Primera and it will be very hard for visitors to hit the net. On the other side, Atletico have very good attack. Antoine Griezmann and Fernando Torres are in the great form and they could be very dangerous for visitors.

“We have to be thinking about one thing: winning.” – said Diego Simeone, Atlético Madrid coach.

Bayern Munich play amazing this season in all competitions. They have qualified in the semis, after they eliminated Benfica, but they didn’t impressive. They beat them at home 1-0, while in Lisbon match between Benfica vs Bayern Munich was finished without winner 2-2. Despite that fact, Bavarians have very strong squad and they are favorites to reach the final, but they know it won’t be an easy job against Atletico Madrid. In Bundesliga they are standing at the top of the table and if they win the next match they will become champions. Last week they beat Werder Bremen in the semi finals of the German Cup and in the final they will play against Borussia Dortmund. But, they want to win the trophy of the UEFA Champions League and without any doubt the clash against team from Madrid is the most important for them in this moment.

“It will be a great game, complete and fun at the same time, and we’ll do all we can to get the final.” – said their manager Josep Guardiola.
