We have to play with intensity and fight because these matches are always very difficult. They are a great team, but we are not thinking about our previous games against them, we have a good opportunity now to beat them. We know what we must do tomorrow and in the return leg as well.
Every match is a different challenge. One time we lost because of set pieces, the last time we lost because of an attitude problem. It's hard to say what happened the last few times, but this will be a different tie, we don't need to win tomorrow and the most important thing for us is to qualify to the next round.
Prediction: Atlético de Madrid 1-1 Real Madrid
