The Madrid derby in Europe comes at the semifinal stage of this year’s Champions League.

Atletico Madrid will be hoping to get their long deserved revenge over their neighbours in this encounter

Real Madrid are one of the best teams in Europe this decade – they have won two of the last 4 Champions League and they will be hoping to be the first team to win the tournament back to back.

The Los Merenges will host Atletico with an amazing record of no losses from their last 10 Champions League games.

During this period they won 7 games and drew three, and they have scored at least 2 goals in every one of those fixtures.

They have also won all but one of their home games in the Champions League this season.

Atletico Madrid have also had a good campaign in Europe this season.

They have lost just one Champions League game in their last 10 games, which was a 1-0 loss to Bayern Munich in the group stage.

They won 7 of those games, and drew 2.

They have won 3 of their 5 away games so far, keeping 3 clean sheets and conceding more than one goal on only one occasion.

Bookmakers make Real Madrid odds-on favourites to come out on top in the first leg however the odds suggest it will be a very close encounter.

Atletico generally play very defensive so don’t be surprised if we see a 0:0 or a 1:0 in favour of Real Madrid.
