Here’s how it looks like at the moment
RB Leipzig go into this game boasting after completely out-classing Tottenham in the champions league round of 16 with a 4-0 aggregate win.However,Leipzig have lost their goal machine in Timo Werner to Chelsea.Werner was the top scorer in the 2019/2020 German Bundesliga season ,second only to Bayern’s Robert Lewandowski.He played a major role in lifting Leipzig to this stage of the competition.However, Leipzig still have two prolific strikers in Patrick Schick and Yussuf Poulsen who may be lead the attack in Julian Nagelsmann line-up.
Atletico Madrid on the other hand knocked out the reigning champions Liverpool in a thrilling tie.Atletico produced a hard-fought 1-0 victory in Madrid before producing a 3-2 upset at Anfield.Late goals from Marcos Llorente and Alvaro Morata ensured Atletico were into the champions league quarters.Atletico are known for their solid defence having conceded just 27 goals in 38 laliga matches.They can score and defend to maintain their advantage until their final whistle meaning Leipzig should be weary not to concede an early goal.Infact, most of Atletico wins in the laliga have been 1-0 wins.Atletico ended the laliga campaign unbeaten in 11 matches with Jan Oblak keeping 17 clean sheets for the whole season.
This means,that Leipzig without Werner, will have difficulty opening Atletico’s defence while on the other side try to keep Alvaro Morata from scoring.

But we want to relax the players and not increase the pressure ahead. There’s always tension.”

It’s not just important to win – it’s the only option. I’m only focused on preparing the game in the best way I can and taking the game in the direction we want it to go. I’ll repeat – it’s not important to win, it’s the only thing that you can do.”
