When: Wednesday at 2:45 p.m. ET
Where: Vicente Calderon in Madrid, Spain
A brilliant Cristiano Ronaldo hat trick lifted Real to a 3-0 win in the first leg last Tuesday. The win puts Real on the verge of its second straight final appearance, which it is likely 90 minutes away from clinching.
Why Atleti is probably done
Atletico enters this match down 3-0, so it will need a miracle to come back. Had Real won the first leg 3-0 on the road instead of at home, I would say Atleti has no chance at all.
The comeback likely won’t happen, and Real is already making its plans for the final, but never say never.
Why Atleti has a chance
Because anything can happen. Imagine if Atleti gets an early goal and then, say, a penalty kick? That would turn the tide on its head and would give us some crazy moments in the second leg.
Player to watch
Atleti’s Antoine Griezmann. The French star is going to have to put on a performance like no other for his team to even threaten here. He can do it, but it isn’t likely.
That scene was repeated as the Atletico fans stayed behind after Saturday’s 1-0 win over Eibar, demanding the team return to the pitch from the dressing room to serenade them with chants of “proud of our players”.
Juventus awaits. They are the only other team other than Real Madrid in this season’s Champions League to be undefeated, and judging by their blitzing performances over the past four games to reach Welsh soil, they would be a hard opponent too.
Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos insists the European champions will not be cowered by an intimidating atmosphere as they visit Atletico Madrid’s Vicente Calderon today. Marshalled by veteran goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon, Juventus have conceded just two goals in the Champions League this season and offered Monaco’s free-scoring attack hardly a sniff last week. Barcelona had also been interested in Theo and they will play Alaves in the Copa del Rey final on May 27, an important game which Querejeta hopes won’t be affected by this transfer saga.
Monaco coach Leonardo Jardim is not one to make sweeping statements, but he refuses to believe that the tie is over and an early goal for his young side would put the home fans on edge.
