Prediction and Preview

Inter Miami vs Nashville

Borussia Dortmund and Atletico Madrid are set to clash in the Champions League quarter-final's second leg, both vying for a spot in the semi-finals. Atletico holds a narrow advantage after securing a 2-1 win in the first leg at Wanda Metropolitano. The upcoming match at Signal Iduna Park promises to be a riveting encounter as Dortmund aims to overturn the deficit.

In the initial encounter, Atletico dominated the first half, with goals from Rodrigo De Paul and Samuel Lino putting them ahead by two. However, Dortmund staged a comeback in the second half, with Sebastien Haller scoring an important away goal in the 81st minute. Now, with the tie delicately poised and Dortmund enjoying home advantage, the match is finely balanced.

Dortmund heads into the fixture following a 2-1 Bundesliga victory over Borussia Monchengladbach, placing them fifth in the league standings, level on points with fourth-placed RB Leipzig. Their journey in the Champions League this season has seen them overcome PSV Eindhoven in the last-16 stage and top Group F, ahead of Paris Saint-Germain.

On the other hand, Atletico responded resiliently to a 3-0 defeat against Barcelona, securing wins against Villarreal and Girona in La Liga. They currently sit fourth in the league, with their fate in the top four in their hands. Their Champions League campaign has seen them overcome Inter Milan in the last-16 stage and finish unbeaten atop their group, which included Lazio, Feyenoord, and Celtic.

While Atletico has a recent history of strong performances in the Champions League, Dortmund aims to replicate its memorable run to the final in 2012-13. With both teams eyeing a spot in the semi-finals, the upcoming clash promises intense competition and high stakes.
