RB Leipzig Preview – Can Leipzig rally following loss of their star mean to keep their European dream alive?

Unsurprisingly for a club of their age, this will be the first time RB Leipzig compete in the last eight of the Champions League. Led by Julian Nagelsmann for the first campaign, the team finished third in the Bundesliga and therefore will be guaranteed to be playing in this competition once again next season. However, with the way in which the draw has unfolded there will be a sense they can be a surprise package and reach the semi-finals if not beyond.

Should Leipzig get past Atletico Madrid tomorrow then they would face either Atalanta or PSG in the last four.

Leipzig have certainly not struggled for goals en route to this stage having scored at least two in six of their eight matches. That includes Tottenham in the round of 16. One key difference for them heading into tomorrow’s game, however, is there is no Timo Werner to call upon following the striker’s move to Chelsea over the summer.

How Leipzig cope with that is going to be key as the Germany Internationalist scored 34 goals across all competitions, highlighting just how importance he was to the way Nagelsmann sets his team up.

Atletico Madrid Preview – Are Atleti set for victory and a fourth appearance in the semi-finals in seven seasons?

Whilst their quarter-final opponents are new to this stage of the Champions League, Atletico Madrid are one of the regulars. This will be the fifth time in seven years that Diego Simeone has led his team to at least the last eight. Of course, their final appearances in 2014 and 2016 when they came so close to winning it will still be fresh in the memory. Particularly as it was their arch rivals Real who defeated them on both occasions.

Simeone will be looking at this as an ideal opportunity to reach at least the semi-finals which would be the first time since 2017 they would have achieved that.

Atleti have caused the biggest shock of the knockout stage so far when eliminating holders Liverpool and doing so with a 3-2 extra-time victory at Anfield. That win came at the start of what has been and continues to be a very impressive run of form.

Simeone’s men have not lost a game since the 1st of February. Since then they have played 18 between the Champions League and La Liga. They have won 11 of them and draw the other seven. That’s the sort of resilience we’ve come to expect from this team and why they’ll be so difficult to beat in these final stages.

RB Leipzig vs Atletico Madrid Betting Advice

This will be the first time these clubs face each other and it’s a really interesting match-up with so much at stake. The big question for the Germans is how they cope without the goals of Werner, especially against a team renowned as being one of the best defensive units we’ve seen for at least 20 years.

Atletico are also in excellent form at the moment and confidence – along with their experience at this stage of the competition – could prove to be decisive.

Key Facts – RB Leipzig vs Atletico Madrid Betting Tip

  • RB Leipzig have scored two or more goals in six of their eight Champions League games this season
  • Atletico are unbeaten since the resumption with seven wins and four draws
  • This will be a first competitive meeting and the winners face Atalanta or PSG in the semi-final


It’s a clash between two teams who are at their best when countering which can often lead to them cancelling one another out. The fact the tie is over one leg may add to the caution we usually see from Atletico and it would be no surprise to see this game go to extra-time or beyond.
