Atleti gear up for a key Champions League clash as we take on AC Milan at the Wanda Metropolitano. The game, which could prove to be decisive in the race for a spot in the last 16, is to be played on Wednesday at 9pm CET.
Our team earned a late win against Osasuna in the last game. Felipe’s header in the 87th minute secured us a 1-0 win. We’ll now look to beat the Italian side to pick up three key points. In the game at Milan, we won 2-1 thanks to two late goals from Griezmann and Suárez.
Stefano Pioli’s side need a win to maintain their chances of progressing to the round of 16. They have earned a point so far – from their draw at San Siro against FC Porto. However, they’re doing much better in the Serie A, where they’re joint top with Napoli – having earned 32 points after 13 match days.
This won’t be the first time we host AC Milan. The first and only time we played them in an official game in Madrid was on Feb. 19, 2014. We won 4-1 on the night and qualified for the Champions League quarterfinals.
