Despite being the away team for the first leg of this tie, the majority of betting predictions for Atalanta vs Real Madrid are edging towards an away victory. However, Real Madrid did not have things all their own way in the group stages of the Champions League this season and although they finished top of Group B, they won only 3 of their 6 games. The victories came home and away against Inter Milan plus at home against Borussia Mönchengladbach.
They're a team with a very attacking mentality and a lot of personality. Gasperini has brought a personality of always looking to score, regardless of the opponent and the stadium they're playing. We'll need to be aware of that. We're looking forward to the games, madridismo knows what this competition means to the club and we'll do our best to make it to the quarter-finals. - Emilio Butruagueno about Atalanta, MARCA
