Preview: Borussia Dortmund vs Atletico Madrid

Borussia Dortmund will host Atletico Madrid at their stadium in the second leg of the UEFA Champions League quarterfinals.

Dortmund’s Borussia

In the Bundesliga, Borussia Dortmund is in a very difficult situation. Though they are now in fifth place, Edin Terzic’s team is not yet guaranteed a spot in the Champions League. Nevertheless, Germany will secure a second Champions League spot if it eventually overtakes England in the seasonal UEFA coefficient ranking. Dortmund played with 10 men for more than 30 minutes during their away match against Borussia Monchengladbach over the weekend, but they still prevailed 2-1. This win stopped RB Leipzig from increasing their point advantage.

Atletico Madrid

Though Diego Simeone’s team is in a better position because they have more points than Athletic Bilbao, Atletico has not yet guaranteed a spot in the top four of La Liga. Madrid defeated Girona over the weekend to earn three vital points. After giving up early in the match, Atletico changed the game’s direction and led 2-1 at the half. After the intermission, Antoine Griezmann completed the victory.
