This match for Atlético Madrid will be mostly about pride. Not wanting to lose at home versus their main rivals. Regarding any chances of making it into the final, it’s reasonable to state that in the Atlético camp there is realism. There is next to no chances left after the 3-0 away loss last week, also confirmed by 25/1 odds for Atlético to qualify at Bet365.
This also sort of marks the end of the season for Atlético Madrid. In LaLiga the team is in a comfortable 3rd place, granting them a spot in next year’s Champions League. All they need is 1 point from their last two matches of the season. Los Rojiblancos officially finish their season with a home match versus Athletic Club Bilbao on the 21st of May and can reflect on another good season in which all expectations are met.
For the match versus Real Madrid, departing coach Diego Simeone’s can not make use, or is uncertain about Š. Vrsaljko, S. Savić, Juanfran and J. Giménez. The latest team news will shed more light on their individual situations.
BACK REAL MADRID TO WIN THE CHAMPIONS LEAGUE HERE AT BET365
Los Blancos are about to finish another season full of silverware. In LaLiga the club is in pole position, and can even afford to drop some points in their remaining 3 matches and still win the title. In the Champions League the final can’t be missed. It will take a complete collapse of the full squad to blow their 3-0 win from the first leg.
A little display of the real strength of the Real Madrid squad was the away match this weekend versus Granada. Of course Granada is poor, very very poor and 0-4 is an expected result. But the way a team full of bench players totally dismantled the home side was impressive.
French legend Zidane has some patching to do in his defense. Gareth Bale and defenders Pepe and Daniel Carvajal all three will be sidelined tonight because of injuries. Most likely Isco will replace Bale, Varane will replace Pepe and Nacho will stand in for Carvajal.
