Read below betting preview, betting tips, useful info and betting predictions for the match between Atletico Madrid vs Real Madrid.
Atletico Madrid can’t be happy with the result from the first leg, but they want to do their best and beat city rivals at The Vicente Calderón. Real Madrid beat Atletico Madrid 3-0, so it will be hard for home team to qualify in the final of Champions League. Atelico created few chances in the first leg, but Real Madrid was better side and deserved to win. Home side know that it will be hard to score at least one goal and secure their net, but they want to say “thank you” to their fans and at least win this game, even if they fail to go through. “On Wednesday we have a very difficult game, impossible for many, but not for us, nothing is impossible.” – said their manager Diego Simeone. He had made some changes in the last LaLiga victory against Eibar 1-0, so they will try to attack city rivals and try to make good result. Atletico’s perfromance against Real Madrid at home in the last few matches is very good. In the last 7 matches between Atletico Madrid vs Real Madrid at The Vicente Calderón in all competitions, home side lost only once (3-3-1), so they hope that can make good result on Wednesday evening.
Real Madrid made fantastic result in the first match against Atletico Madrid and they have already made one big step forward to the final. It would be a big surprise if they fail to reach the final, but to be sure they have to be serious in the second leg, because Atletico have very strong team and play much better upfront their supporters. The main goal for visitors will be to score at least one goal. In that case home side would have to score at least 5 goals which is unlikely to happen. Cristiano Ronaldo showed his quality and scored all three goals in the first game, so without any doubt he could be the most dangerous player for home side. In the last LaLiga game Real Madrid smashed Granada CF 0-4, so they are still in the race for the title, but in this moment the match against city rivals is priority. “Every game is a final and tomorrow is one. We’re going to play our game – we can’t do anything else.” – said their manager Zinédine Zidane.
In home team Fernández is injured, while Vrsaljko, Juanfran and Giménez are all doubtful. On the other side, visitors will be without Carvajal and Gareth Bale.
