The Champions League Quarter-Final stage moves to Lisbon, Portugal when RB Leipzig of the Bundesliga go head to head with Atletico Madrid of La Liga. Julian Nagelsmann, one of the best young coaches in all of Europe will need to be spot on with his tactics in this one, as Atletico Madrid’s lineup is built for winning a tournament like the Champions League.
It has been a great season for RB Leipzig both domestically and internationally, as they once again made it into the Champions League next year given their finishing position in the Bundesliga and have made it to the quarter finals of Europe’s most prestigious prize.
The big news for RB Leipzig coming into this one is the loss of Timo Werner who will ply his trade next year with Chelsea in the Premiership. Werner was critical for Leipzig in both putting the ball in the net and just general creativity in the final third.
The other unfortunate thing for Leipzig is that Werner’s replacement Hwang Hee Chan from Salzburg will not be eligible to play in this one.
That is, however, not to say that Leipzig has nothing going forward anymore with Marcel Sabitzer pulling the strings in midfield and Nkunku likely taking on the role of the main striker up front. Nkunku was serviceable all year and is a threat in front of goal and has plenty of pace, but he will have his hands full with one of Europe’s best defenses.
Atletico Madrid also made it into the Champions League next year with a solid third place finish in La Liga with a final record of 18-16-4 which was good for 70 points. They only allowed 27 goals in those 38 games which is pretty unbelievable and a big part of that defensive record has been the consistent world-class play of goalkeeper Jan Oblak who is easily in the top 3 in Europe at the position.
Atletico’s downfall, and this has been true for many seasons now, has been the offense. They did try to spice things up a bit signing teenager Joao Felix from Benfica for 126 million Euros and although he has been solid this year he has not been able to change the offense the way the club would have hoped.
He does remain Atletico’s most dynamic play maker up front and it will be interesting to see if he, as well as the likes of Alvaro Morata will be able to break down this Leipzig defense who can be quite good one their day as well.
Free RB Leipzig vs Atletico Madrid Champions League Prediction:
It is a bit of a boring pick, but for me this one has draw written all over it. A 0-0 or 1-1 scoreline after regulation are by far the most likely outcomes in my opinion and the +220 on the draw looks perfectly fine.
The 1-1 exact scoreline also is available at +500 and that also looks to be a good bet at a big plus money price if you are looking for something that could pay big.
