The ATL vs DOR match preview –
Bundesliga leaders in Borussia Dortmund will be taking on Spanish team Atletico Madrid in a game of the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday.
Atletico Madrid are suffering from a goal drought this year. Even though they have a fantastic striking lineup, the number of goals is not enough. But, coach Diego Simeone is known to be a manager who loves to set up teams to be defensively sound. Atletico Madrid are in the third place current and only four points off the top. If their players were playing at the top of their potential, it can be said that they would be the table-topper. The season is still long, and better things are expected from them.
Meanwhile, Borussia Dortmund are playing some of the best football the team has played in the last five years. They are back on top of their domestic league and with a team of young players who are not only talent but also motivated, the sky is the limit. Manager Lucian Favre has made an instant impact to this team and he knows that if the team needs to keep up these performances, the balance has to be maintained in the formation. Once again, Borussia Dortmund have positioned themselves as the dark horses for this tournament.

Players to look out for-
- Marco Reus
The German forward has always been thought to be one of the best players in the world if he remains injury free. He has scored eight goals in 15 games this season.
- Antoine Griezmann
The Atletico Madrid forward has made bold statements about his ability but has done limited things to back them up this year. A return of only five goals in 15 games is not impressive for someone as spectacular as Antoine Griezmann.
