Atletico (Madrid) has to overcome the 0-3 loss at the first match if he wants to be the final winner of the semi-final match against Real Madrid on Wednesday evening, but Vicente Calderon fans can not boast that they often see such victories . In February 2015, Atletico achieved one of his most memorable victories over the same rival after defeating him with a 4-0 win in a home league match. It was actually the only victory over Real Madrid with three goals or more in the last four decades, but it still gives hope to fans and players for the successful end of the second semi-final on Wednesday.

“We’ve already defeated them once with four goals at Calderon, playing Cristiano Ronaldo, and everyone else,” said Coke’s midfielder midfielder after the first game, “You never know what will happen in football.” Ask Paris Saint Germain, they We need to be aware of this. We are going to this match with the idea of ​​fighting to the end.

“It will be very difficult to do it, but it’s football – it has to try.” The unexpected things happen and we will struggle to the last drop of hope We will try to do something impossible But we are Atletico Madrid and we are obliged to We have already identified ourselves as a third power in Spanish football, so we are obliged to defend that, said coach Diego Simeone.

But another tradition is more disturbing. Atletico will try to avoid a fourth consecutive defeat from Real in the Champions League. In 2014 and 2016, both teams met in the final, and Real Madrid won both battles. In 2015, the “matuskichi” dropped to the quarterfinals. “It is very difficult to overcome such a liability, but we have to keep our faith until the last moment we play in front of our fans and we are obliged to leave them happy,” said Atletico defender Stefan Savic.
