Unfortunately for Julian Nagelsmann, the coach will not be able to use the services of Timo Werner and Marcel Sabitzer. Both players were an integral part and helped the team to reach the quarter-finals as well as to finish in the top 4 in the Bundesliga. Timo Werner was signed by Chelsea for a fee of 55 million EUR while Sabitzer is with a knee injury.
Atletico Madrid ended the season in LaLiga in an impressive form. The boys of Diego Simeone left no doubt that they deserved their place in Champions League. Considering the absences of players within the team, Sime Vrsjalko and Angel Correa are put on quarantine and cannot take part in any football and training activities for 14 days. Anyway, there are qualitative back-ups for both players in the squad.
Atletico already eliminated the strongest team in the world Liverpool. Tonight they will face another big challenge but we think that the team knows how to perform well in clashes.
