This evening at 21:45 is the rematch match between Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid in the 1/2-final in the Champions League. Hosts of Vicente Calderon will have to do a real miracle to eliminate their rival after losing the first match with 0: 3.
The good news for Atletico Madrid is that they are in a very strong home form in the Champions League. The team is in a series of 10 consecutive non-loss matches in which it recorded 8 wins and 2 draws at Vicente Calderon. Even if they can not get rid of the big enemy, the hosts will want to score a positive result tonight to celebrate their match at this stadium in Europe.
This is the 28th 1/2-final for Real Madrid in the tournament. So far, the “Royal Club” has 14 won and 13 lost the clash at this stage. The good news for the white is that in the history of the Champions League there was no chance for a team to drop out at this stage after winning the first 3-0 match.
Atletico coach Diego Simeone can not count on the injured Huffran and Shime Vursalko. The positive thing for the mentor is that he will be able to use José Jimenez tonight, who has resumed training in recent days.
In the composition of Real, Pepe and Rafael Varan are already training with the team, but their participation in the fight tonight is questionable as they have not entered the optimum rhythm. Coach Zinedine Zidane will decide at the last minute whether to reveal to any of them.
