This afternoon, our side will fly to Lisbon for the second leg of the UEFA Europa League quarter-final against Sporting CP. Paulo Futre, Atlético and Sporting CP legend and fair play ambassador of the knockout round, will welcome us to the Portuguese capital.
In the José Alvalade, Futre will live another unforgettable experience, just like in the Wanda Metropolitano. Futre was raised in Sporting CP’s academy and had great success with Atlético. It was Futre’s first time in the Wanda Metropolitano and he was impressed by the stadium and the experience he lived during our 2-0 win against Sporting CP.
As the ambassador of the knock-out round, Futre wishes both fanbases enjoy a great spectacle, with lots of fair play, like in the first leg.
