Real Madrid vs Atalanta

After a relatively uneventful first leg that saw the Italian team play with ten men on the field. The UCL is back for the second leg of Real Madrid vs Atalanta’s second leg.

Real Madrid

Real Madrid lead 1-0 on aggregate, and history is on the Galacticos’ side, with Real having not failed to reach the quarter-finals in 3 successive UEFA Champions League appearances since a spell between 2005 and 2010. Either way, this should be over in 90 minutes, with 70% of their last ten. Round-of-16 home ties being settled by a 2 goal margin. In addition to scoring exactly twice in the first half in each of their last two UEFA Champions League games on home soil, 13-time winners Real also enter this clash after no defeat in seven LaLiga matches, despite leading at HT just once. All five first halves drawn within that sequence saw no goals scored at all.

Atalanta

Visitors Atalanta have won three of their last four matches by a 2 goal margin, averaging 2.5 goals per match inside the 46th-60th minute across the two most recent victories. ‘La Dea’ remain an unpredictable side in Europe, with all of their last eight Champions League fixtures producing a result different to the one before it. With both draws in the above sequence seeing Atalanta score last. The Bergamasque side can never be ruled out until the bitter end. Additionally, Atalanta have won five straight UEFA Champions League away matches. Four of those victories saw the decider come between the 60th minute and FT.

 

Players to watch: Karim Benzema hit a first-half brace in Real’s last UEFA Champions League game played as hosts. Mario Pašalić netted a double in the second half of Atalanta’s weekend victory vs Spezia. Nearly half (five) of the 12 Champions League goals scored by these two players combined since the start of 2019/20 have been Goal 2 in their respective matches.
