RB LEIPZIG VS ATLETICO MADRID PREDICTION

After overcoming defending champions Liverpool in the Round of 16, Atletico will feel this is a golden opportunity for them to finally go all the way in this competition. They face a valiant Leipzig side who will be without star striker Timo Werner who helped them get this far but he has since departed for Chelsea. They have a good system and strong all-round team, but the absence of Werner leaves them without that x-factor. Atletico have arguably the best balanced team in the competition with their typically strong defence but good attacking options. They have to be favoured to progress here with their edge in quality and experience at this level.
