- Atletico Madrid will have a mountain to climb in the second leg of the semi-final.
- Cristiano Ronaldo scored a scintillating hat-trick against city rivals in the first leg.
Atletico Madrid will lock horns with their city rivals Real Madrid yet again in the second leg of the Champions League at the Vicente Calderon on Wednesday evening. Diego Simeone and his men know very well that overcoming a three-goal deficit will be a daunting task.
Atletico Madrid will be desperate and they will come out with whatever they have in their arsenal against an in-form Real Madrid. If they manage to overcome that deficit, then they will be the first club in the history of the Champions League to achieve this feat.
The host will be wary of the kind of form Cristiano Ronaldo is in. The Portuguese superstar single-handedly demolished Atletico Madrid in the first leg of the Champions League at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Atletico Madrid: Oblak; Savic, Godin, Hernandez, Luis; Carrasco, Niguez, Gabi, Koke; Griezmann, Gameiro.
Real Madrid: Navas; Nacho, Ramos, Varane, Marcelo; Kroos, Modric, Casemiro; Isco, Benzema; Ronaldo.
