Leipzig and Atletico Madrid meet in the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals on Thursday. The Bundesliga club have to adjust to life after Timo Werner, can they overcome a battle hardened Atletico side in Portugal?

Julian Nagelsmann’s side finished third in the Bundesliga. They struggled to turn draws into wins, drawing eight of their final 15 Bundesliga matches.
