In 2013 2014, the UEFA Champions League came down to the two football teams from Madrid, with Real ultimately topping Atletico for the title. This year, it's still unclear as to which teams could be considered the frontrunners for the prestigious European soccer tournament. One thing is clear though, and it's that the championship match will not be an all-Madrid spectacle in 2014 2015. Why? Because Real and Atletico have been drawn to face one another in the quarterfinals. Those rooting for the Vikings should head over to Soccer Box's Real Madrid soccer shop today, to support the club through what will surely be a competitive quarterfinal battle.

The 2013 2014 Champions League
If you are looking for jerseys or jackets at the Real Madrid soccer shop, then you probably already know about the Vikings and their recent history at the UCL tournament. Last season, the football club won their 10th title in the tournament-a Champions League record. It was their first win at the event since 2002.
Winning a 10th UCL title, and doing so after 12 years of trying, would have been enough to satisfy any football team. To make the victory even more rewarding, though, the Vikings achieved it by beating their crosstown rivals, Atletico Madrid, in the championship match.
The battle between the Vikings and the Mattress Makers, which took place last May at the Estadio da Luz in Lisbon, was a hyper-competitive one. Atletico, battling for their first-ever UCL title, scored first and led 1-0 for the majority of the game. Real, shooting for their big milestone, tied things up at 90+3 to send the game into extra time.
Fans in the Real Madrid UCL jersey 2014 2015 fondly remember the remainder of that game. It was in extra time where the Vikings really let loose, scoring three goals in the space of 10 minutes to turn the close and competitive match into a landslide victory. Appropriately, the great Cristiano Ronaldo scored the last goal to seal his club's 10th Champions League trophy.
This year, though, the situation is different. For one thing, the Mattress Makers are still fighting for their first UCL title, while the Vikings have very little left to prove in this hallowed UEFA tournament. For another, the two soccer squads will do battle in the quarterfinals instead of in the championship match.
The round will begin on April 14th, with Atletico taking the home field advantage. The second leg, a home game for Real, will be held a week and a day later, on April 22nd. Stop by Soccer Box's Real Madrid soccer shop today, to prepare for these two big games.
Both of these football clubs struggled to even reach the quarterfinals this year. The Vikings were nearly ousted by Schalke 04, after performing sloppily (and losing) in the home leg of the round of 16. The Mattress Makers, meanwhile, had to beat Bayer Leverkusen on a penalty shootout to break a tied aggregate and earn a quarterfinal spot.
Both soccer squads have also recently hit rough patches in the 2014 2015 La Liga campaign. The wearers of the Real Madrid home jersey haven't won a La Liga match since February 22nd, and have conceded their top division spot to FC Barcelona as a result. In fact, just this past weekend, the Vikings lost to Barca 1-2 in an away game.
Meanwhile, Atletico is sitting in fourth place in La Liga, and has settled for more than a few lukewarm draws or losses lately. Last year, the football club won the Spanish division, a fact that made the championship match with Real Madrid even more exciting.
The question is this which of these soccer teams has the advantage as the quarterfinal round approaches. Will the Vikings don the Real Madrid UCL jersey 2014 2015 ready to defend their Champions League title? Or is this the year that the Mattress Makers finally win the UEFA tournament?
Only time will tell, but you can prepare for the battle today, with a new 2014 2015 jersey or two from Soccer Box's Real Madrid soccer shop. Whether you are out to shop for a home shirt or an away jersey, you can find it here at Soccer Box
