Leipzig vs Atlético de Madrid – Champions League – RB Leipzig has been growing exponentially on the past couple of seasons, both domestically and in Europe.
Leipzig vs Atlético de Madrid –The presence of the Germans on these quarter finals of the Champions League is precisely the reflection of that.
On the last edition of the Bundesliga, the side led by Julian Nagelsmann finished in 3rd place, behind Bayern and Dortmund, managing to qualify onto the Champions League, but they were a little underwhelming, especially because they remained very competitive for most of the season and they crumbled on the fight for the title and the 2nd place on the final stretch.
On this competition, Leipzig advanced on a group that included Lyon, Benfica and Zenit and they’ve eliminated Tottenham on the 8th finals.
The last official match was on June 27th, on the last round of the Bundesliga, against Augsburg (victory by 2-1). About two weeks ago, Leipzig played a friendly against Wolfsburg, where they’ve gotten a 1-1 draw.
As for Atlético de Madrid they’ve also managed to accomplish some sort of achievement on the 8th finals.
Diego Simeone’s team is coming to the end of a season that was transition, due to the departure of several important figures (Griezmann being the main one) and the change attempt on their playstyle.
To reach these quarter finals, the “colchoneros” have eliminated the current European champions Liverpool, with a victory by 2-3, on extra time, in the visit to Anfield Road, on past March.
On La Liga, Atlético finished in 3rd place, behind Real Madrid and Barcelona and ahead of Sevilla. The team from the Spanish capital ended the season on July 19th, with a draw (1-1) against Real Sociedad.
This will be a single-leg knockout tie, due to the new format decided by UEFA to make the “final 8” in Lisbon.
Obviously, the possibilities of theoretically weaker team winning increase on this scenario, but still I believe that Atlético will have a better ability to manage the several moments of the match when comparing to Leipzig.
Reminding that Werner already went to Chelsea, Nagelsmann’s side counts with a lot of technique and irreverence, but also some
Despite the changes in Atlético, Simeone has more experienced players at his disposal, who are used to this kind of decisive matches and they won’t mind giving possession to Leipzig, camping in front of their own goal and taking advantage of the spaces left on the back of the German defence to score.

Leipzig vs Atlético de Madrid – Betting Tips:
With Leipzig being a less permeable team on the defensive transition, I wouldn’t be surprised at all that Atlético would be able to win in the 90 or 120 minutes or even on penalties, never forgetting that they count with the “monster” Oblak between the goalposts.
