Real Madrid stars have arrived at the club’s impressive training base ahead of the second leg of their Champions League semi-final tie with Atletico on Wednesday.
Los Blancos stars made their way to Real Madrid City on the eve of their match against city rivals at Vicente Calderon.
Real Madrid City is the club’s all-encompassing training base – which is 40 times bigger than the Bernabeu.
It includes the Alfredo Di Stefano training pitch, youth pitches, an indoor swimming pool, games room, cinema, restaurant and 57 individual bedrooms for the La Liga giants to utilise.
The leisure facilities at Real Madrid City will certainly help ease any tensions the Spanish giants have heading into the semi-final clash.
Zinedine Zidane’s men are sure to be spending the evening dissecting Atletico’s tactics and discussing means to quell the threats they pose.
But Real take a commanding 3-0 lead into the tie and look certain to join Juventus in the final in Cardiff next month – barring any major upsets.
Goalkeeper Keylor Navas will try and keep Atletico from overturning the 3-0 win in the first leg
Karim Benzema and Luka Modric will also be key men for Zinedine Zidane’s side on Wednesday
Cristiano Ronaldo once again provided on the main stage, as he so often does, by bagging a hat-trick at the Bernabeu last week.
It leaves a huge uphill struggle for Diego Simeone’s men, who will need to overturn a three-goal deficit – a feat they have not achieved since 2015 when Antoine Griezmann was the man to bag a hat-trick.
Atletico will need their talisman to step up once again if they have any chance of fighting for that Europe’s premier club trophy next month.
