After grinding out a hard-fought 2-1 victory in the first leg, Atletico Madrid will be looking to defend their narrow advantage when they take on Borussia Dortmund in the second leg of their UEFA Champions League quarter final clash on Tuesday.

The Spanish side, currently sitting fourth in La Liga, are seeking their first trip to the UCL semifinals since 2017. Meanwhile, Dortmund, who find themselves a disappointing fifth in the Bundesliga, will be desperate to reach the final four for the first time since 2013 and salvage what has been an underwhelming domestic campaign.

The match, set to kick off at 3 p.m. ET, will be streamed live on Paramount+, the exclusive home of Champions League action this season. Fans can now try the platform free for the first seven days by signing up here.

Dortmund enters the game as the +125 favorites on the 90-minute moneyline, with Atletico Madrid priced as the +200 underdogs. A draw is listed at +250, while the over/under for total goals is set at 2.5.

“After winning 2-1 in the first leg, Atletico Madrid will try to hold off Borussia Dortmund in the second leg of their 2024 UEFA Champions League quarterfinal matchup on Tuesday on Paramount+,” the report states.

The first-leg victory at the Wanda Metropolitano gave Atletico a slender advantage, but they will know that Dortmund will be desperate to overturn the deficit in front of their raucous home supporters at Signal Iduna Park.

Atletico manager Diego Simeone will be counting on his team’s resolute defensive organization and streetwise approach to frustrate Dortmund’s attacking talents. The German side, led by the dynamic duo of Jude Bellingham and Karim Adeyemi, will need to find a way to break down Atleti’s stubborn backline if they are to book their spot in the semifinals.

“The Spanish squad is currently fourth in La Liga, but is seeking its first trip to the UCL semi finals since 2017. Meanwhile, Dortmund is a disappointing fifth in the Bundesliga, but would have a claim to a successful season with its first semifinal appearance since 2013,” the report notes.

For those looking to get in-depth coverage of the match and the rest of the Champions League action, the CBS Sports Golazo Network is the place to be. The 24-hour digital network provides wall-to-wall soccer content, including live matches, highlights, analysis, and exclusive shows.

When it comes to the match itself, betting expert Brandt Sutton has provided his expert analysis and pick. Sutton, a former collegiate soccer player and SportsLine’s top soccer editor, is predicting that the game will see over 9.5 corners.

“Sutton is picking Over 9.5 corners for the game. These two teams combined to take 16 corner kicks in the first leg of this UEFA Champions League quarterfinal matchup and Dortmund has taken at least eight corner kicks by themselves in their last three home games,” the report outlines.

With Atletico likely to sit deep and soak up pressure, and Dortmund needing to take more risks in pursuit of the two goals they require, Sutton believes the set pieces will pile up on Tuesday afternoon.

“Optimistic shooting could lead to an inordinate number of corners. That’s a big reason why Sutton is laying the juice (-135) and expecting to see the set pieces pile up on Tuesday,” the report states.

Atletico will be aiming to protect their slender lead and grind out another gritty away performance, while Dortmund will be throwing everything at their opponents in pursuit of the two goals they need to overturn the deficit.
