Atletico Madrid vs Real Madrid by Mudhara_9er
Athletico Madrid will want to continue to force their way into the top of Spanish after several years of Real and Barca dominance. They have lost top goalscorer Diego Costa but have replaced him with a man just aa capable of scoring goboth goukic!! Just as much as Diegos Costas goals won them the league, they defence was important, and they have managed to hold onto the two central defenders, Godin and Miranda, but have lost filipe luis and outstanding goalkeeper Courtois to Chelsea. The two changes are very big but they still have their defensive generals so this will not make a very big difference although it is a weakness.
Real Madrid have been very busy in the market bringing in world cup winner Kroos and golden boot winner Rodriguez to strengthen their starting 11. Gareth Bale has been good for Madrid but will be better this season. Athletico are undefeated in 5 games conceding in 3 and scoring in four. With the signing of Mandzukic they still posses a threat to any defence, Madrid lost 3 drawn 1 and won 1, they are undefeated in official matches so far and with the two new recruits posses a big threat to opponents defence. Ronaldo was substituted with a minor problem in the first leg but has been declared fit to play, Di Maria and Khedira (not in the starting 11) have been named to leave the club, this however will not affect tonights game.
Real Madrid are a complete team but their weakness is in the backline, Casillas will be trying to find his form from past seasons asap Pepe and Ramos who are fantastic defenders have tendensis to black out in games so the hosts will get their chances at scoring. Madrid however have a great attack that has players such as Di Maria and Isco on the bench, both capable of winning a tight game.
Simones boys are known to be very tactical and disciplined, they play at home against their biggest Rivals and will do what it takes to lift the trophy.
Most of Athleticos games against giants have produced few goals, and i expect the same in this game, but the firepower both teams posses is sure to produce goals.
If a goal is scored the team trailing will have to score in order to have a chance at lifting the trophy.
