RB Leipzig vs Atletico Madrid will take place at Estadio Jose Alvalade on Thursday, 13th August.
RB Leipzig and Atletico Madrid come face-to-face in the UEFA Champions League quarter-final where both the teams will give it their all to win a place in the semi-finals.
Atletico Madrid are in a tremendous form as can be seen by their previous match results. They have not lost a single game in last 18 matches across all competitions. Moreover, they knocked last year’s champions Liverpool in the last round. This is the fifth time they have reached this stage.
On the other hand, Leipzig are a bit rusty as they have not been in action in over a month since Bundesliga season finished off. However, they were in great shape as well, considering they only lost a single game out of the last 15.
Furthermore, this is the first time they have reached the quarter-finals of the Champions League and they would want to make history this time by reaching the semi-finals.
RB Leipzig vs Atletico Madrid Team News
There are no injury concerns in the RB Leipzig squad. The only problem could come from Yussuf Poulsen who got injured before the end of the Bundesliga season.
Otherwise Leipzig has a fully fit squad to play, albeit they might be a bit rusty for being out of action for over a month.
Atletico Madrid striker Angel Correa and defender Sime Vrsaljko had test positive for Coronavirus and thus will remain in self-isolation missing the game that would determine if the Spaniards would make it to the next stage of the competition.
Other than the two individuals, the rest of the squad is fit and Diego Simeone has a number of players to choose from.

Match Predictions RB Leipzig vs Atletico Madrid
RB Leipzig have previously knocked out the finalist of the last season Tottenham from the Round of 16 with a 4-0 aggregate in both the legs.
However, the German side has not been a part of a competition in more than a month since the end of their domestic season. They must be a little rusty.
On the contrary, Atletico Madrid have just ended their La Liga season 2 weeks earlier. And considering their recent form, they must be eager to get back in the game and create a momentum for themselves.
Moreover, they have previously defeated the previous season champions Liverpool on 4-2 aggregate. It was considered a massive upset by the Spanish side.
Furthermore, they are unbeaten in the last 18 games across all competitions. It would give them a confidence boast.
Considering all the facts, it seems Atletico Madrid might slip past their German opponents in this contest.
Prediction: RB Leipzig 0-1 Atletico Madrid
Both the teams would face each other for the first time in history.
