Spanish clubs “Real” and “Atletico” will play on Tuesday in the first semifinal match of the Champions League. Madrid derby in the main European Cup tournament will be held for the fifth time in three years, and “Real” in these matches has not lost to fellow countrymen even once.
The draw brought two Spanish teams in one of the semifinals, so either Real Madrid or Atletico will play in the Champions League final for the second consecutive year. Last season, “Atletico” was, as never before, close to the title of the strongest club in Europe, but lost to “Real” in the penalty shootout. Two years earlier, Real Madrid beat Diego Simeone in the Champions League final in extra time, and Sergio Ramos equalized the score on the third added to the second half of the minute.
Ramos scored in last year’s final in Milan, Italy, so that the defense leader and captain of “Real” remains an evil genius, “Atletico”. Team Zinedine Zidane is the favorite of the upcoming series, given the successful game in recent years in the Champions League matches with “Atletico”. In addition, in the quarterfinals with the “Bavaria” “Real” withstood the pressure from the champions of Germany and one of the favorites of the tournament, having twice defeated the famous rival – 2:1, 4:2.
