They’ve got it all to do! Europe’s most successful team of all-time, Real Madrid trail 2-0 in their Champions League quarter-final game against Wolfsburg. But they can still go through to the semi-finals if they beat their opponents by three clear goals in this intriguing second leg match-up on Apr. 12.

It’s a huge task for Real to overturn in the first leg, trailing by two goals. It was actually their first defeat in a Champions League quarter-final since 2004, but they should take heart from the fact they have come back from a 2 goal deficit in the past. Back in 1987, they lost a first leg 4-2 to Red Star Belgrade, only to win the second leg 2-0 and go through on away goals.
But with an all-star lineup, that includes Rihanna‘s ex-boyfriend Karim Benzema, who is capable of scoring any type of goal, and captain Sergio Ramos, they will certainly be capable of winning this one. In fact, it will probably be an attacking onslaught on the Wolfsburg goal from the first minute.
Wolfsburg do have their own diamond in Julian Draxler that they can unleash on some deadly counter-attacks if Real get too cavalier with their attacks and leave their defense wide-open. He could be the match-decider.
Wolfsburg stunned everybody by beating Los Blancos in Germany thanks to goals from Ricardo Rodriguez from the penalty spot and striker Max Arnold. They will be hoping to get an away goal in the second leg to put this tie to bed.
