Betting tips & odds comparison 13.08.2020 RasenBallsport Leipzig - Atlético de Madrid
Betting Tip for matchday 0 of the 2019/2020 Champions League between RasenBallsport Leipzig and Atlético de Madrid. The game will be played at Estádio José Alvalade (Lissabon, Portugal) on 13.08.2020 at 21:00.
RB Leipzig v Atletico Madrid, UCL QF
RB Leipzig and Atletico Madrid will lock horns at the Estadio Jose Alvalade on Thursday evening in the second quarter-final of this season’s Champions League.
RB Leipzig did well to finish third in the Bundesliga, although they lost a bit of momentum towards the end with some disappointing draws that champions Bayern fully capitalized on to create separation with the chasing pack and march onwards to their 8th consecutive Bundesliga title.
Their biggest loss at the end of the season did not come on the pitch, however. They lost their leading striker Timo Werner who opted to sign a contract with Premier League side Chelsea for the coming season.
The onus now is on coach Julian Nagelsmann to bring his side together and find a way to navigate whatever is left of the season without him. He still has players he can call upon but whether they will have what it takes against one of the towering teams in this competition remains to be seen.
Atlético Madrid also finished third in La Liga and now their focus shifts to the Champions League where they tend to save their best performances. They have made a name for themselves for their ruthless defensive principles coupled up with an efficient attack. Holders Liverpool got a taste of this in the last round. They lost 1-0 in Madrid and despite matching that result in the return leg at Anfield, they had no answers to Atleti’s quick-fire goals from Marcos Llorente and Alvaro Morata in extra time and that was enough to dump them out.
With Timo Werner no longer a worry, Atleti’s defence should be more than able to contain anything that Leipzig might throw their way.

MATCH PREVIEW AND BETTING TIPS FOR RB LEIPZIG V ATLETICO MADRID
Atletico Madrid concluded the restarted La Liga season on an 11-match unbeaten run to finish third behind champions Real Madrid and Barcelona. As outlined in the team preview, Diego Simeone reserves his best performances for this competition. He has been to two finals, in 2014 and 2016 and lost both to bitter rivals Real Madrid. Their experience and quality, when compared to RB Leipzig who are not only missing their best player but are in their very first quarter-final, should be enough to see them through. We are backing them to get the win here @ 2.25 with Bet9ja as our initial betting tip for the game.
Alvaro Morata, after a largely uneventful spell in the English Premier League with Chelsea, returned to Atletico and has seemingly had a new lease of life. He leads the team this season with 16 goals to his credit. He has also recovered from nagging injuries that saw him missing some games in the course of the season. Three goals in seven champions league appearances is a decent enough return for him this season. We are backing him to add onto this tally by scoring a goal anytime @ 2.90 with Bet9ja betting app as our final prediction for this encounter.
