Real Madrid are looking to reach the Champions League quarter-finals for the first time in three seasons as they face an exciting Atalanta side tonight.

Los Blancos are the most successful team in the competition with 22 wins and claimed three in a row between 2016 and 2018, but Ajax and Man City have proved too strong at this stage during the past two campaign.

In Atalanta this time, Zinedine Zidane’s injury-hit side will know they are facing an up and coming outfit. The Italians won at Anfield in November and were within touching distance of the quarter-finals last year.
