RB Leipzig vs Atletico Madrid PredictionMaking it to the last-eight of the Champions League can already be considered an overachievement for RB Leipzig, given their lowly expectations prior to the start of the campaign. Considered complete outsiders in Europe, Die Roten Bullen have upset the odds to make it this far.
Match status: 2019/20 Champions League - Play Offs Quarter-finals
Venue: Estádio da Luz (Lisbon)
Carrying on from their outstanding display in the German Bundesliga last season, Leipzig blew everyone out of the water once again, finishing third on the standings this term. Having amassed a whopping 66 points from 34 games, they successfully clinched a spot just behind Bayern Munich and Dortmund.

Speaking of exploits, Atletico Madrid have had their own fair share of impressive runs this season as well. Despite struggling to get their wits about them earlier on, Los Colchoneros got their acts together just at the turn of the year to muster a successful top-four finish.

Now, with domestic commitments out of the way, RB Leipzig and Atletico Madrid will immediately switch focus to their one-off quarterfinal Champions League clash to be played at the Estadio Jose Alvalade on Thursday night. Expect an exciting game between these sides in Lisbon come kickoff.

RB Leipzig vs Atletico Madrid Team News

An inspiration to smaller clubs harboring hopes of taking huge steps forward, RB Leipzig have been the surprise packages of the German Bundesliga for the past two seasons. A juvenile club founded in 2009, you would think the Red Bulls are not yet fit for top-flight football.

However, Leipzig have risen the bar so high, challenging for European places and even the league title. With a new young head coach in Julian Nagelsmann taking over the reins at the Red Bull Arena at the start of the season, very few knew what to expect from Die Roten Bullen this term.

Surprisingly, as the campaign took off, the men from Saxony wasted no time in showing their league title-winning credentials. Strutting a couple of wins on the trot, Leipzig propelled themselves to the top of the standings, leaving defending champions Bayern Munich grasping for straws.

Unluckily for them, they soon witnessed a dip-in-form, causing them to relinquish top-spot to the rightful owners – Bayern Munich. In the end, they secured a third-place finish in their domestic league. In imperious form on the European scene also, Leipzig finished atop Group C of the CL to advance to the last-16.

Pitted against Tottenham at this stage of the competition, the Red Bulls made light work of their English opposition posting a comfortable 4-0 aggregate win on the board. Meanwhile, Atletico Madrid will already be drawing plans on a potential masterclass against Leipzig in this CL fixture.

Having finished their domestic league campaign on a high, remaining unbeaten in each of their previous 18 games on the bounce, Atletico Madrid are in with a shout here. Aided by Liverpool’s stand-in goalie Adrian, Los Colchoneros pulled off a major upset in the last-16, sending the Reds crashing out.

In a frantic game at Anfield, Atleti secured a narrow 3-2 win to post an impressive 4-2 aggregate score-line. On the night, Marcos Llorente was the cream of the crop, firing two cracking extra-time efforts to send Liverpool sinking, and out of the Champions League.

If RB Leipzig are to progress any further in this competition, they will need to be wary of the former Real Madrid man who looks to be in high-spirits. Surely, keeping the 25-year-old out of the game could be enough to tame Atletico Madrid’s attack, well, to a reasonable extent.
