Dream11 Fantasy Soccer: RB Leipzig v. Atletico Madrid Preview

This article is part of our Dream11 Fantasy Soccer series.

Game Preview

Two of the biggest surprises in this season's Champions League will collide Thursday in Lisbon, as RB Leipzig will battle it out with Atletico Madrid for a spot in the tournament's semi-finals. Both teams secured impressive results during the Round of 16, as Leipzig dispatched Tottenham, while Atletico travelled to Anfield to eliminate Liverpool in a thrilling extra-time period. The Bundesliga giants are a team to watch, though it remains to be seen how they will adjust without Timo Werner, who recently moved to Chelsea. Diego Simeone's men have the pedigree and the experience to move into the next round, but their defensive-minded approach is always hard to trust, especially against an offensive-minded team such as Leipzig.
