Zidane wary of game against already relegated Granada

Zidane wary of game against already relegated Granada

Atletico Madrid host Real Madrid at the Vicente Calderon in the second leg of the Champions League semi-final on Wednesday evening, in a game that could be hard to call given the tie is all but over after Real won 3-0 in the first leg at the Santiago Bernabeu. "We are going to keep fighting".

"I don't think there's an issue with the players' attitude [being 3-0 up], there are risks involved in football; you have to play, you don't win before the whistle, and we've got to put in a good performance if we want to go through".

"This group of players lacks a big comeback and we hope it is on Wednesday".

The Spanish teams remain very similar to what they looked like in that encounter in 2015.

Atletico guaranteed a top-four finish as Saul Niguez's victor 21 minutes from time earned a 1-0 win over Eibar.

Atletico's right-back situation has already reach crisis point but Simeone says, "Juanfran is getting better, developing well from his injury".

"I didn't enjoy that first-half that's for sure and I would like to have my own team one day but that's personal and that's not why I'm here", he added. We know how to beat them and we'll try to do everything possible to do so.

Will Hertz (HTZ) Lose More Ground Post the Q1 Debacle?
If we look at stock performance in last active day trading, we see that stock has moved slumped -1.05% to end the day at $102.77. Sell-side analyst recommendations point to a short term price target of $21.44 on the shares of Hertz Global Holdings, Inc.

"It seems like here we have grown up in Beverly Hills", said Ramos on Tuesday.

Atletico is trying to avoid losing to Madrid for the fourth straight season in the Champions League.

However, Villarreal striker Cedric Bakambu continued his brilliant form to bring the visitors levels just 11 minutes later when he streaked clear of Gerard Pique before slotting home his seventh goal in six games.

Real equalised in the 93rd minute of the 2014 final en route to winning their long-awaited 10th European Cup.

Most Atletico fans would settle just for finally beating Real on a famous last European night at the Calderon, even if it doesn't stop their bitterest rivals from making the final once more.

However, the size of Atletico's task is illustrated by the fact that Real have scored in all of their last 60 games stretching back over a year. We respect all these campaigns and all that is being said, but it will not change anything. "Both are really interested but we've not closed anything with them".
