Start time: 19:45 GMT
Wolfsburg hosts Real Madrid in ¼-finals in the Champions League. The first match between the two teams is Wednesday, April 6, from 19:45 GMT at “Volkswagen Arena”.
In only his second Champions League participation after his debut in season 2009/10, Wolfsburg managed to qualify for the first phase of direct elimination. “Wolves” have achieved two victories over surprise in the eighth-finals of the Champions League Gent. After the victory with 3:2 as a guest, “VFL” duplicate their success at home beat the Belgian team with a minimum 1:0.
Their upcoming opponent is very strong and will not be surprised if the German team again fails in this phase. The good performance of Dieter Heking’s side at home, however, can give them optimism. Wolfsburg won all four households in the Champions League this season, including against Manchester United.
Real Madrid in the quarter-finals for the sixth consecutive season, having eliminated AS Roma after two wins with 2:0 in getting to this stage there is hardly anything surprising. The balance their ¼-finals is 26 wins and 6 losses and as things go this season, they can qualify for the 27th time in the semifinals after one of two unbeaten teams in the race. Furthermore, Real Madrid played very much like a guest in the Champions League. Loss 1:2 against Juventus in the first semifinal match last season’s only defeat of “Los Blancos” in their last 11 games in Europe.
“Los Merengues” won six consecutive games in all competitions for the last lost to Atletico in the city derby on 27 February. The mood in the team is excellent after the victory in the “Clasico” against Barcelona over the weekend with 2:1.
Graduates of Zinedine Zidane trailing on the score, but made a complete turnaround and silent “Camp Nou” after goals from Benzema and Ronaldo. Despite the success, Real remained on the 3rd position in the standings, a point less than the second Atletico and seven behind leaders Barcelona.
I think Real Madrid will have no problems against Wolfsburg and will win the first match. “Los Blancos” demonstrated effectiveness in the visit of Roma to 1/8-finals and won 2:0, but the Italian team is undoubtedly in a much better form of “The Wolves” who won the only point from their last three matches in Bundesliga .
