Thoughts From Both Camps

“The game against Bayern will be as difficult or even more so than the one against Barcelona. They have different weapons but play similar football. We hope it won’t be their night and that we can get a good result.”

– Jose Gimenez, Atletico Madrid.

Atletico have the best defense in the Spanish Liga. I think they’re a team that play on the break. We need to be careful. We know it will be tough, but we are Bayern.”

– Robert Lewandowski, Bayern Munich.

Contributor’s Pick

According to Head-2-Head statistics, the previous two matches between these two clubs have resulted in one draw and one win for Bayern Munich. Although Pep Guardiola’s side will start the match as favorites, Atletico Madrid’s defense will hold the key to their future in the competition and a 1-1 stalemate is the most likely result for the first leg.
