Opposed to Atalanta Bergamo and Borussia Mönchengladbach, Real Madrid and Manchester City are entering the last two round of 16 first leg of the Champions League, with the favors of the predictions Wednesday February 24, 2021
Zinédine Zidane and Pep Guardiola at their business: with their coaches multiple European champions, Real Madrid and Manchester City approach as favorites the last two knockout stages of the Champions League, Wednesday February 24, 2021 (9 p.m.)
Real challenge the “Dea” in Italy Winners 13 times in the Champions League, the Madrilenians face Atalanta Bergamo for the first time in their history Despite a chaotic run in the group stage, the Real stars finished at the top of their group, beating Mönchengladbach 2-0 on the final day, thanks to a brace from French international Karim Benzema
Real will, however, have to deal with the absence of their star striker, injured and already forfeited against Valladolid on Sunday in La Liga
Despite three consecutive European coronations during Zidane’s first term (2016, 2017 and 2018), the “White House” seems less formidable this season Outpaced by Atlético in La Liga, weighed down by absences, the Merengue team nevertheless relies on the magic of “ZZ” in this competition, which he won as a player (2002), as an assistant coach (2014) and as head coach (2016, 2017, 2018)
Conversely, for its second participation only in the Champions League, Atalanta Bergamo advances without great certainties but also without complexes
The “Dea” (goddess, in Italian) of Gian Piero Gasperini had she not tamed another Spanish team, Valencia, at the same stadium last year, before falling only in added time in the quarters against Paris SG (2-1)?
An intractable leader of the Premier League, Manchester City have been undefeated since November and hope to achieve their excellent start to the Champions League season (5 wins and a draw in six matches in the group stages) tonight against Mönchengladbach
It’s because the Mancunian club has an unfinished history with the European event Beaten in the quarter-finals last year by Olympique Lyonnais (1-3), Manchester City dreams of offering Guardiola a new C1 title, a decade after those conquered on the bench of FC Barcelona (2009, 2011)
Belgian Kevin De Bruyne could make his return during this meeting relocated to Budapest, due to restrictions linked to Covid-19 But the Citizens will face the surprise team of the group stage: Mönchengladbach coach Marco Rose felt that his team had nothing to lose against the English With his French attackers, Alassane Pléa and Marcus Thuram, a duo that shone throughout the group stage (7 goals between them), Mönchengladbach has enough to shake City
