On April 16, 2024, we will have a very interesting game between Atlético Madrid and Borussia Dortmund. We will watch the 2nd leg of the Champions League quarterfinal. Both teams were big underdogs at the beginning of the competition, so we could expect an interesting game. Atlético Madrid won the 1st leg 2-1. Borussia Dortmund needs to open up at home, so we can expect a high-paced game tonight.

Atlético Madrid have won four out of their last five games. They currently sit in 4th spot in La Liga. They are 4 points below Girona and also 4 points above Athletic Bilbao. They need to keep winning in La Liga if they want to play in the Champions League next season. Even though they were not so good this season in La Liga, they were great in the Champions League. So far, they have just lost one of their eight Champions League games so far. They currently have 6 wins, 2 draws and only one loss. In the first leg, Atlético Madrid dominated against Borussia Dortmund and could have won by more than just one goal. We also must mention Antoine Griezmann who is probably having his best season. He is currently the second-best scorer, tied with Haaland in the Champions League. With his help, we believe that Atlético Madrid could reach the semifinals.

Borussia Dortmund won their last game against Mönchengladbach. Borussia Dortmund is currently sitting in 5th spot, which would lead them to the Europa League spot. They have the same number of points as Leipzig, who are in 4th spot. It will be an interesting battle for the Champions League spot. Borussia Dortmund need to step up tonight in front of their own fans. Their 1st leg performance was just not good enough. Haller scored in the 81st minute of the 1st leg, so their hopes were still alive. Unfortunately, Haller got injured against Mönchengladbach and will not play tonight. BVB are unbeaten in nine straight Champions League home games. They have 5 wins with 4 draws so far.

Best Bet to Make

Atlético Madrid was the better team in the 1st leg. If they had converted their big chances, they would have won by at least 2 goals. Diego Simeone prepared them well for this battle. According to the bookies, Borussia Dortmund are the favorite tonight. However, based on what we saw in the 1st leg, we believe that Atlético have a decent chance in Dortmund tonight. Diego Simeone will lead them to another semifinal, and if he does so, only Sir Alex Ferguson will have reached more semifinals with the same club in his career.

That being said, Atlético Madrid winning or draw is a value bet.
