Real Madrid

The Mattress Makers and the Vikings have followed similar paths in this year's UCL. Both Spanish football clubs topped their groups in the first phase of the tournament, both were matched up against German squads for the round of 16, and both only narrowly reached the quarterfinals.

The wearers of the Club Atletico de Madrid shirt started out in Group A, winning four games en route to securing a spot in the round of 16. Group A also included Juventus, Olympiacos, and Malmo FF. Juventus is also still alive in the tournament.

Meanwhile, Real won all six of their group stage games, including both home and away matches against Basel, Liverpool, and Ludogorets Razgrad to establish themselves as frontrunners for the 2014 2015 Champions League.

The round of 16 is where things hit a snag for both of Madrid's soccer squads. Donning the Atletico Madrid away jersey 2014 2015 for a first leg battle with Bayer Leverkusen, the Mattress Makers lost 0-1 to fall behind in the aggregate. They ultimately won the home game leg 1-0, and beat Leverkusen in a penalty shootout to secure a quarterfinal spot. Still, the win was narrow, and it left fans wondering how far their club de football could reach in the tournament.

The Vikings had struggles of their own in the round of 16. They beat Schalke 04 in the away leg, besting the German football club 2-0. Surprisingly, though, Schalke fired back, beating Real Madrid 4-3 in the rematch. Real still won the round, on an aggregate of 5-4, but would have been eliminated if Schalke had just scored one more goal.

The Quarterfinals

Such was the state of things as fans in the Club Atletico de Madrid shirt arrived at Vicente Calderon Stadium for the first quarterfinal bout between the Mattress Makers and the Vikings. The April 14th fixture ended in a scoreless stalemate. Unfortunately, if there was a winner in the soccer fixture, it wasn't Atletico.

Indeed, even with the home field advantage on their side, the Mattress Makers were struggling just to keep up during Tuesday's match. Real's squad controlled the ball for nearly two-thirds of the match, and it was only because of Atletico goalkeeper Jan Oblak that zero of the away side's nine on-target shots found their mark.

Still, a draw in Tuesday's match means that Atletico still has every chance to progress to the semifinals. The question is, when the Mattress Makers don the Atletico Madrid away jersey 2014 2015 on April 22nd, will they be able to formulate a more successful offensive strategy?
