The Champions League's most successful side will be looking to once again secure their place in the quarter-finals of the competition when Real Madrid host Atalanta.


Los Blancos hold a 1-0 advantage from the previous round of Champions League fixtures, with Ferland Mendy scoring a late away goal for Real in the first leg in Bergamo.

It could prove to be a crucial goal for Zinedine Zidane's men and means that, should Real score at the Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano, Atalanta would have to net at least three times in order to progress.

However, the Serie A side are rarely shy in front of goal and eliminated Spanish opposition at this stage of the tournament last season when they beat Valencia over two legs.

This seems like a much bigger task for La Dea, who will need to be defensively solid in Madrid if they are to have any chance of qualification.

Our prediction: Real Madrid v Atalanta

The hosts are in good form ahead of this clash and have won six of their last eight in all competitions, conceding just four times in that period.

A similar showing of defensive solidity on Tuesday will see them progress to the last eight and Los Blancos have to fancy their chances against an inconsistent Atalanta side.

Stranger things have happened, but the experience in this Madrid team should see them move onto the next round.

Our prediction: Real Madrid 1-1 Atalanta (6/1 at bet365)
