They managed positive results with Anderlecht and Ajax in the qualifiers and impressive victory over Dutch giants Ajax 4:1. However yet the match against Bayern München demonstrated that Rostov is far away from the highest level of European teams.
Atletico is in superb form, Simone improve his "machine" every year by year, conceded only 3 goals in 8 games in the league and are yet to concede a goal in the champions league. Superb streak, run of 10 unbeaten matches since last season’s Champions League final. It includes beating Bayern Munich, drawing at the Camp Nou. Coach said that "If I had to choose players based on their shape, I would have to put up with 15 player. Which means how good prepared his long squad is.
Los Rojiblancos are forced to travel over 3,500 kilometers by air to the historic city - one of Russia's oldest.
Aletico record balance in plus with Russians clubs but travelling to Russia might to find difficulty to visit the post-Soviet club, good example is Kazakhstan last season, where Madrid was unable to achieve more than a 0-0 draw against FC Astana. I really like comparison to last long trip by Los Rojiblancos when they met Astana, in that time scoreless result came with 4-7 corners, today I see very common situation. The conditions and cold temperatures can have an impact on Spanish team. Rostov Oblast is deep in the south west of the vast country, making Rostov one of the kinder away trips for a team from continental Europe.
There is no room for understatement the rival, Diego says he is well aware of the dangers of Rostov.
Rostov somehow managed to hold PSV to a 2-2 but Dutch missed penalty. Bookies surprised me with the handicap, in fact they suggest to stats where Rostov never lost in corners against teams like PSV, Anderlecht or Ajax but.. Atietico is a rock, solid defense than any other team on a planet. They come back from long overish streak with team who also likes to conceded and win couple. In cold Russia I don't expect much, long time coudn't deiced if go for under 9.5 or just take favorite in handicap, this time the second option goes for Betshoot.
