Atletico Madrid have a date with the Champions League
Although exceptional circumstances have brought the 2019/20 season to a halt, Atletico Madrid have an appointment with the Champions League when things get up and running again.
After knocking out the reigning champions in Liverpool, only a suspension of the season will stop Los Rojiblancos from dreaming of success.
Atletico have reached the quarter-finals now and after giving Jurgen Klopp’s Reds their marching orders, they’d fancy themselves against anyone.
There have been 22 occasions wherein the champions have been dethroned in the Champions League’s current format, and on eleven of those their executioners have gone on to lift the trophy.
In four other occasions, they’ve made it as far as the finals and there have been five cases of them reaching the semi-finals before falling.
