Atletico Madrid have scored 12 goals so far this Champions League season, but the players likely to start against RB Leipzig in the quarter-finals only account for five of them.
They are Saul , who scored one against Liverpool , Marcos Llorente , who scored two against the English side, Stefan Savic , who scored one against Juventusand Hector Herrera , who scored the team’s other goal against Juventus .
Yet the Atleti backups have also been scoring goals, with the other seven goals from this European campaign scored by players likely to start on the bench on Thursday.
One of those players is Alvaro Morata , who has three goals so far – two against Bayer Leverkusen and one against Liverpool .
Another is Joao Felix , who scored in each match against Lokomotiv Moscow .
Then there’s Felipe and the injured Thomas Partey , who scored one goal each against the Russian side too.
So, if Atletico Madrid find themselves in need of a goal late on against RB Leipzigthen Diego Simeone can take confidence from the goalscoring firepower he has on his bench.
