One believes in attacking for the entire length of the game while the other believes in his team sitting back and hitting on the counter.The kick-off is set to take place at 12:15 am IST and 11.45 PST and live telecast in India will be on Ten Action and Ten HDViewers in the UK can watch the match live on BT Sport. Click here for the live streaming link. Also Catch: Live Updates of the Bayern Munich vs Atletico Madrid match

After a hard fought, slightly cagey draw betweeen Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid, the scene shifts to Vicente Calderon, where the two teams will be battling it out for honours in the first leg. Bayern Munich have one of the best away records in the Champions League over the last few years and that will be the biggest  challenge for Atletico Madrid, who will be bracing themselves for a rain of attacks in the attacking third. Atletico, home or away will line up with bodies behind the ball and try to hit their opponents on the break on the counter through the pace of Antoine Griezmann and Gabi. The fullbacks will also be playing a very big part. Also Read - Need to Win Trophies Before I Can be Among Elite Level of Lionel Messi And Cristiano Ronaldo: Kylian Mbappe

What makes this game capitivating is the contrast of styles that will be on display. Pep Guardiola’s sides have found it tough at times to break down teams who defend in two banks of four. There is history in the contest too. Just like the 2014 final, Atletico were on the verge of winning the 1974 final. The match went to extra time and in the last minute of the game, the Germans levelled scores before going on to win the game, much like what Real Madrdid did. This is a different side, a group honed by Simeone who are fearless and have become regular league and Champions League contenders.
