Thrilling European soccer continues Thursday when Spanish juggernaut Atlético Madrid takes on German stalwart RB Leipzig in the quarterfinal round of the Champions League tournament.
Like Wednesday’s Champions League match, this showdown will also take place in Portugal, this time at Estádio José Alvalade in Lisbon.
RB Leipzig hasn’t featured in more than two months, with its last match ending in a 1-1 draw against Paderborn in Bundesliga action. Atlético Madrid has been off slightly less time, having battled Barcelona to a 2-2 tie on June 20 in La Liga play.
Atlético Madrid took a minor hit on the health side in the leadup to this match, with Angel Correa and Sime Vrsaljko testing positive for coronavirus earlier in the week. Both players are scheduled to miss the contest, but manager Diego Simeone must have breathed a big sigh of relief when he learned no one else on the team contracted the virus.
RB Leipzig, which is unbeaten in its last six Champions League games, will miss star striker Timo Werner after he left the Bundesliga club on a massive move to Premier League power Chelsea. Werner could have stayed through Champions League play, but opted to bounce to prepare for the upcoming season in England.
