Bayern has scored 27 goals over the last eight games and have only conceded a single point against them, according to Bleacher Report. The last time they lost was in Apr. 2016, when Der FCB went against Atletico in the semi-finals of the prior Champions League season. Atletico would put Bayern down, advancing to the finals to face the eventual winners, Real Madrid.
Things have changed since that semifinals loss. Carlo Ancelotti, 57, became Bayern’s new manager. While Carlo didn’t make any major changes, the tweaks he did ensured that the squad is getting the most out of players like Robert Lewandowski, 28. It seemed to have work!
However, they’re not sleeping on Atleti. “We know from playing them in the semi-finals how they play. We know their strengths and their weakness. We have to deploy all our weapons against them,” midfielder Thiago Alcantara, 25, said ahead of the game, per Goal.com.
“They defend better than us, better than Barcelona, better than any other team in the world,” he added. That’s some impressive praise, considering that Bayern has only allowed a single goal so far. If Thiago thinks Los Rojiblancos are better than they are, that means this will be one heck of a match.
Will Atletico’s defense be up to the task? Or will they fall like the rest of Bayern’s opponents. HollywoodLifers – who do you want to win this match? Are you backing Bayern Munich or are you rooting on Atletico Madrid?
