RB Leipzig vs. Atletico Madrid Match Analysis and Prediction

Estadio Jose Alvalade sets to host one of the final matches of the day for a slot in the Champions League semi-finals. The match pitches RB Leipzig against high flying Atletico Madrid. The match schedules for Thursday with kickoff at 10 pm.

Atletico Madrid edged off last year’s Champions Liverpool from the last round managing to proceed to the last eight. The side manages to make it to the quarter-finals for the fifth time in seven seasons.

It is a totally different case for side RB Leipzig who is making it for the first time to the quarter-finals of the Champions League. The side made it past the group stages after exiting last years’ finalists Tottenham.

Nagelsmann has come under heavy fire, especially with the exit of the talisman Timo Werner ahead of the Champions League fixture. Timo Werner recently signed for Chelsea with Nagelsmann, pointing out there is enough firepower ahead of the clash.

Diego Simone has built a reputation for recording disappointing results at this stage of the competition. The side registered various losses to the side, putting the side’s threat to proceed to the quarter-finals in jeopardy.

After edging out Liverpool in a heated clash for the last eight, Simone hopes to build on the win. The side finished third in La Liga behind the big two.
