After comfortably seeing past Serie A side AC Milan to book their place in the Champions League quarter-finals for the first time in 17 years, people are finally starting to take Atletico Madrid seriously. The two-time Europa League winners have been an impressive outfit for a number of years, but this season has seen them finally threaten to break Barcelona & Real Madrid’s stronghold in La Liga.
Not to mention how formidable the Spanish outfit have been in the Champions League. Diego Simeone’s men are unbeaten in the competition this season, and have conceded just four goals in their eight games – boasting an impressive four clean sheets.
After how they easily they saw past Milan in the last-16 clash, Betfair are giving odds of 21/5 for Madrid to make the final of the Champions League this season, potentially replicating that of last season’s unexpected finalists Borussia Dortmund who surprised everyone to nearly go all the way to a Champions League triumph.
Atletico Madrid have drawn just one of their eight games in the Champions League – winning the other seven. Could they be this season’s surprise finalists?
