Atleti gear up for a vital Champions League clash at the Wanda Metropolitano, where we’ll be taking on Lokomotiv Moscow on Wednesday at 9 pm CET. To qualify for the competition’s knockout stages, Simeone’s men will need to win the game or earn the same result as Bayer Leverkusen achieve against Juventus.
Our players will have a packed Wanda Metropolitano behind them as they fight to qualify for the last 16. It won’t be the first time we host Lokomotiv Moscow at our new stadium, since we faced the Russians in the Europa League in March 2018. We won 3-0 that night thanks to goals from Saúl, Diego Costa and Koke.
The Moscow club lost their last Russian Premier League match against FC Arsenal Tula and are currently fifth in the standings with 34 points.
In our game at RZD Arena, which was our second group stage clash, we earned a 2-0 win thanks to strikes from João Félix and Thomas Partey.
