Real Madrid Vs Atletico Madrid Live Online Commentary
Real Madrid key players were not been able to show their usual goalscoring form in recent weeks. Los Blancos needed a stroke of luck to surpass Bayern Munich in the second leg of the quarter finals stage and were duly punished by Barcelona within a matter of few days in the league meetings. However, Madrid had lost just once in their last 15 games in all tournaments, which definitely says they have the knack of getting results when it matters. Anyhow, they could do much better if some defensive stability has been found. They are only 3 clean sheets in the last 12 home matches. As regards Real team news ahead of this match, full-back Fabio Coentrao and central defender Pepe are sidelined, as is winger Gareth Bale.
Meanwhile, Atletico Madrid are performing much better in the second half of the 2016-2107 campaign. Diego Simeone’s men were outside top four during the whole of year 2016, but they managed to pull back things and now they are third in La Liga. Atleti have been in sizzling form, thanks to the solid defensive line that kept 10 clean sheets in the last 14 outings in all tournaments. They lost four matches since the start of 2017, but all came at their home stadium. The Colchoneros are undefeated in 15 matches on the road during the period with a record of 8 wins and 7 draws. As regards visitors team news for this match: winger Yannick Carrasco and central midfielder Augusto Fernandez are ruled out as are defenders Sime Vrsaljko and Juanfran.
