As has so often been the case over the last decade, Real rose to the occasion in the Champions League and beat Liverpool 5-2 at Anfield, pretty much wrapping up the tie at the halfway stage of the last-16 clash. It’s a less comfortable picture in LaLiga though, with Carlo Ancelotti’s side eight points behind leaders Barcelona.
Atletico sit fourth in the table, winning four of their last five matches in the league. They were beaten 3-1 by Real last month in the Copa del Rey, but that match was level in extra-time before Stefan Savic picked up a red card.
