Tactical Analysis and Key Matchups

If Eden Terzic is to take Borussia Dortmund into the semi-finals, then he will need to be patient as he’ll be coming up against a stern Atletico Madrid side.

Diego Simeone’s side are famous for making European nights frustrating for all of the continent’s top sides and this will be no different.

Terzic has proven to be versatile this season and they’ll go into the game confident after beating Bayern Munich in March.

For Madrid, this competition is their best chance of glory this season and if they can keep Dortmund’s forwards quiet, they’ll know they can prove dangerous up front after knocking out Inter Milan in the last round.

Player Form and Impact

Dortmund will know their attacking players can have a big say on this tie and if they arrive in top form then Atletico are in for a tough night.

Julian Brandt, Donyell Malen, and Niclas Fullkrag have all excelled in front of goal this season, and with Jaden Sancho now part of the attacking mix, Dortmund will be confident they can score goals.

Atletico have a stubborn defence with Jose Gimenez and Stefan Savic at the heart of it, but they have excellent players up top for when they want to counter.

Antoine Griezmann, Alvaro Morata, and Memphis Depay all play their part when Madrid are attacking, and their input could be vital.

Predictions and Expectations

This is a tough tie to call as both teams have superb players, but Simeone is a master in this situation. His team can soak up pressure and although Dortmund may get on the scoresheet, Madrid will find the net also and they can advance by a narrow margin.
