Leipzig v Atletico Madrid Preview And Betting Tips – Champions League Quarterfinal

The decision to play the remaining rounds of the Champions League behind closed doors in Lisbon will undoubtedly benefit Leipzig, especially the fact that this is no longer a two-legged tie. Atletico still go in as favourites having not lost a single match since the beginning of February when including extra time and penalties, going W11-D7 over this period which secured them third spot in the league and a place in the quarters of this competition at the expense of current holders Liverpool. Diego Simeone knows a thing or two about how to progress in this tournament and against Julian Nagelsmann’s men, he’ll fancy his chances. Expert tipsters Form Labs guide you to where the value might lie with their betting preview and tips for the quarterfinal clash.

The German club were in with a shout of a first Bundesliga title this season, though failure to achieve back-to-back victories since February left them struggling to keep up with high flying Bayern Munich and Dortmund.

They’ll still be happy with their campaign, though the loss of Timo Werner may be too great for them to qualify against the Spaniards.

Their goals per game drops considerably from 2.21 when the German has started for them over the last two seasons, to just 1.17 when he hasn’t.

Although that six-game sample isn’t a great indicator, it’s still telling of how much they value their all time leading scorer, and that is bound to play against them up against one of the best defences in Europe.

Atletico Madrid To Win And Under 2.5 Goals

Atletico’s seven goals conceded in this year’s competition is only the eighth best record, though they have played a game more and before their second leg at Anfield only PSG had a better record than Atleti’s five goals conceded from seven matches.

That means that six of their eight matches in the competition have seen two goals or fewer over 90 minutes, and we wouldn’t be surprised to see the same result.

Indeed, Leipzig are averaging 2.75 match goals per game in this year’s competition, though 14 of those have been scored by themselves, with their former talisman Timo Werner being directly involved in six (4G, 2A).

The German side have been known for their midfield domination, which was the pivotal factor that guided them to a 4-0 aggregate victory over Spurs in the last round, though the likes of Saul, Koke and Thomas Partey aren’t going to be overrun here and we’re struggling to see where the goals are going to come from.

The Spaniards have kept a whopping 22 clean sheets this season across all competitions, six of which have come after the recent enforced break and the ‘Unders’ looks to be the best bet for this game.
