Uefa Champions League Milan 2016

Updated on March 18, 2016

Wolfsburg vs Real Madrid

After successfully and deservingly topping Group B ahead of Manchester United, PSV and CSKA Moscow, Wolfsburg then met Belgium side Gent in the last 16 of the competition where they steadily made their way through on a scoreline of 4-2 on aggregate. Wolfsburg now face their biggest challenge of the competition yet, facing the unpredictable Real Madrid who have a rich history in the competiton. Real Madrid looked destined to progress past the group stages after being drawn into a group which was certainly a two- horse race which saw them battle for first place against Ligue 1 champions PSG. The spanish giants impressively picked up 16 points out of a possible 18 which unsurprisingly resulted in Madrid topping group A. Madrid then faced Italian side roma in the last 16 where they convincingly won the tie 4-0 on aggregate.

The clash- Prediction

Although both teams seem to be dissapointing in their domestic leagues, this tie is destined to be a fierce battle with many goals being scored over the two legs. The talent on the pitch is unqeustionable, wolfsburg work in syncronisation as a team whereas Real Madrid rely on their individuals to step forward and take centre stage. Real madrid may struggle to win at the Volkswagen Arena but at the Bernabeu it will be a different story. I feel Madrid have several world class players that will surely pierce through wolfsburg's solid back 4 and this is why I fancy Madrid to make the semi finals of the tournament convincingly. My prediction is 5-2 on aggregate to Madrid.

Players To Watch


Brazilian central defender Naldo has been at the heart of wolsburg's success in the competion this year. The strong centre back is decisive in his tackling and always positions himself well on the field to react to any danger. Naldo is also a dangerous aerial threat which gives him a great chance of helping his side and scoring against real madrid from set pieces.German youngster Julian draxler is one of the Bundesliga's most skillfull and dangerous players, the 22 year old was heavily linked with a move to Arsenal which shows the talent he posesses. The young german is an extremely versatile player who scores and assists goals for fun, he will almost certainly cause danger to Real Madrid's defence.

Real Madrid

I think everybody who knows anything about Football know which name is going to be mentioned. Of course it's the machine that is Cristiano Ronaldo. The Madrid winger is a defender's worst nightmare with his insane pace and dribbling, he can make his way past any defender in a one on one. Ronaldo demonstrated his lethal shooting in the first leg of the round of 16 where he scored an outrageous goal against Roma. This man will surely score in this tie being Madrid's star man. The final player to watch is Marcelo, the Brazilian left back is arguably one of the best in his position throughout the world. Marcelo reads the game incredibly well and can sniff a counter attack from a mile off. The full back has a wicked left foot which can be used to whip the ball into the box, switch play quickly and accurately or even score wonder goals which he has done many times before in the Champions League.
