Champions League Quarterfinal Odds: Madrid Takes Center StagePublished April 14, 2015 by Sol FH
Real Madrid is 100% healthy and set to take on cross-town rivals Atletico Madrid at 19:45 (UK).
The first leg of the Champions League Quarter Finals gets underway tonight at 19:45. There will be much focus on Juventus vs Monaco, but rest assured the battle for Madrid will be what's on everyone's minds. Atletico Madrid will be at home to kick things off, facing off against a Real Madrid team at full strength, something we haven't had the pleasure of seeing in five months.
Among those to return to Real Madrid is Gareth Bale, back after a thigh injury kept him off the pitch against Eibar last Saturday. Bale has not played the best soccer of his career and many critics argue about whether he should be worth the record breaking £85 million deal he scored in 2013.
Will Real Beat Atletico?
In the battle between Atletico and Real Madrid, there has been 156 matches total. Real has won 85 games and forced 33 draws, leaving Atletico with only 38 wins. That has been different this season, as Atletico have gotten the better of Real in almost every game that they have faced one another.
The match will definitely be one of the most heated events of the Champions League so far and it would be foolish to miss out. To witness the sheer talent that will be playing at Vicente Calderon in a few hours is reason enough to tune in wherever and however you can.
