Our prediction for this Champions League match:
A spot in the Champions League semis will be at stake when Leipzig and Atletico Madrid face each other at Estadio da Luz on Thursday evening. Unlike previous season, the two teams meet in a one-legged tie, and, no doubt, both sides are likely to adopt a cautious approach in the quarter-final clash. The Red Bulls proved their worth in back-to-back wins over Spurs, but beating Diego Simeone’s warriors in one game is easier said than done. A man to keep an eye on in the Bundesliga team will be Timo Werner, who was scoring goals for fun in the national championship last term.
Los Rojiblancos, on the other hand, did well to claim a major scalp in the Champions League last 16, with the team beating Liverpool in a double-header. The La Liga side are likely to rely on their rock-solid defence, and even though two Atletico players were tested positive for coronavirus before the match, we predict that Diego Simeone’s troops will hold Leipzig to a draw.
