Atalanta vs Real Madrid Munich Match Preview and Team News
Atalanta is coming straight from a crucial 4-2 win over Napoli and has now scored 11 goals in the last four matches. If they can carry this form to this Champions League clash, they’d have a good advantage heading to Spain. However, some tweaking still needs to be done in defense, with the team having conceded six goals in the four matches. They have seen over 2.5 goals scored in nine of their last ten matches, with both sides scoring in eight of the 10. Atalanta has failed to score in just one of the previous 11 games. In the group stages, they did well, winning three of the six, keeping three clean sheets, and head here unbeaten in three Champions League matches. It hasn’t been rosy at home, though; Atalanta has no win in their last four Champions League matches at their backyard. Marten de Roon found the right role in the team, he moves great in the middle of the game on the field, and it’s hard to take the ball away from this guy. Josip Ilicic is the engine of this team, and his greatest virtue is speed. He has excellent ball control and can be satisfied with his performance.
On the other hand, Real Madrid is coming from a hard-fought 1-0 win over Real Valladolid, their fourth straight victory and third consecutive clean sheet. Real has done well lately for an injury-ravaged team, and they’re also in the race for the La Liga title. The side will travel without up to nine key players, including skipper Sergio Ramos, Marcelo, Eden Hazard, and Dani Carvajal. Karim Benzema is also a doubt for this game. Despite the long injury list, Real has managed to stay among the top contenders for titles in the season, and this game is another opportunity. They’ve scored in each of their last eight matches and have three straight away wins ahead of this game. In the previous five Champions League matches, they’ve lost once and scored at least two goals in all but one game at the group stage. Casemiro has excellent ball control, he can play in several positions, and every team needs such a player. Junior Vinicius creates a lot of problems for his opponents on the right flank. It’s hard to keep this guy in a one-on-one game.
