REAL MADRID vs. ATLETICO MADRID

With a team that has looked vulnerable in recent matches, Real hosts Atletico looking to extend its dominance over its crosstown rival and reach the final for the third time in four seasons.

Real’s regular starters have struggled going into Tuesday’s game at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium, where Zinedine Zidane’s team needed a late goal to beat Valencia at home in the Spanish league over the weekend. It conceded late in a loss to Barcelona last week and needed extra time to eliminate Bayern Munich in the Champions League quarterfinals two weeks ago.

But Real has a winning record against Atletico in European competitions, beating its rival in a penalty shootout in last season’s final to secure a record 11th European Cup title. Two years earlier, it beat Atletico after extra time in the final. In the quarterfinals in 2015, it edged Atletico 1-0 on aggregate before losing to Juventus in the semifinals.

“It will be a very tough and hard-fought game, and just like our most recent meetings, it will come down to details,” Real right back Dani Carvajal said.

Zidane, who won the Champions League as a player with Real Madrid, has a chance to lift the trophy for the second straight time as a coach, less than 18 months since making his debut as a manager.

Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone will have to find a way to stop Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo and Real Madrid’s other stars to earn another shot at the trophy. A win this season would establish Atletico Madrid as a top European club, and silence critics who say the team’s recent successes have been flukes. Atletico Madrid also lost the 1974 final, that time to Bayern Munich.
