Atletico Madrid eye 2015 repeat to stage impossible turnaround

Atletico Madrid eye 2015 repeat to stage impossible turnaround

Atletico were boosted on Sunday by the return of defender Jose Gimenez to training although they are still without right backs Juanfran and Sime Vrsaljko, who they missed badly in the first leg as they struggled to cause Real's defence any problems.

"We trust what we can do, I trust a lot in my players", the Atletico coach said at a press conference.

Lucas said, "Every match against Atlético is hard because they are a great team, with great players". "You never know what's going to happen in soccer, just ask Paris Saint-Germain".

The Spanish teams remain very similar to what they looked like in that encounter in 2015. The other goal was scored by Mario Mandzukic, who now plays for Juventus.

Carney said he expects real wage growth will eventually pick up, but that there would be "consequences" if it doesn't. This is a carefully worded Inflation Report, drafted, of course, in the middle of an election campaign.

A 3-0 win by Atletico on Wednesday would send the game into extra time and, possibly, a penalty shootout.

A hat-trick from Cristiano Ronaldo at the Santiago Bernabeu last week means the holders are very much on course for Cardiff next month, barring one of the most unlikely comebacks.

"It's going to be very hard, but this is soccer", Simeone said.

No side has ever recovered from a two-goal deficit in the semi-finals, while it is sure to be an emotionally-charged atmosphere in what will be the last European tie at Atletico's intimidating home before the club moves to the state-of-the-art Wanda Metropolitano. "The best thing is to believe it is possible, even if we only have a five percent chance", the Portuguese said.

Glacier National Park is losing its glaciers
With this data , the researchers measured the perimeters of the glaciers in late summer from 1966, 1998, 2005, and 2015/2016. The rates of decline vary from glacier to glacier; some are at relatively higher elevations and shaded by nearby mountains.

"Atletico will have their weapons and we have to try to continue on our path, which has got us to where we are".

Captain Gabi said they wanted to repay the fans: "Once again they haven't left us behind". Atletico will be playing its last European game at the stadium before moving into a new venue next season.

The competition still remains strong for Jurgen Klopp to secure his target, but all hope isn't yet lost for Liverpool.

The 19-year-old could have left the Vicente Calderon for €24 million due to a buy-out clause in his contract, which Liverpool were more than willing to meet. Atletico has won 29 of its last 35 European games at home, with only two losses.
