"Never stop believing" has been the motto of Atletico fans over the last few seasons, although what has been central to their identity will arguably be put to its sternest test on Wednesday evening.
Trailing 3-0 to Real Madrid, even the most ardent fan of Los Rojiblancos must be struggling to belief that the side can make it through to the Champions League final for the third time in the last four years.
Atletico, of course, are capable of beating their cross city rivals, yet if Madrid get themselves on the scoresheet, as they have done in each of their last 60 matches, then Atleti will need to score five times.
dabblebet price a home win at 13/8 (2.62) while Zinedine Zidane's side are offered at the same odds and the draw is available at 12/5 (3.40). The hosts can meanwhile be backed at 14/1 (15.00) to make it through to the final, while Madrid are offered at just 1/50 (1.02).
The odds reflect the magnitude of the task facing Diego Simeone's men, although the Argentine coach will have his team fired up for the battle and they can be backed at 19/20 (1.95) to score the first goal of the contest.
Whether it will be a high-scoring game remains to be seen, although Madrid's last visit to the Vicente Calderon saw them record a 3-0 win in La Liga back in November. Both teams to score is priced at 8/13 (1.62) but more attractive is the price of 4/5 (1.80) for over 2.5 goals.
Atletico need goals to have any hope, while Madrid have a superb scoring record. Indeed, this bet paid out in 17 of Los Blancos' last 18 games in all competitions, and even if they score early to kill the tie on Wednesday they will still look for goals to underline their superiority.
Also worthy of consideration is the price of 11/4 (3.25) for Madrid to win and over 2.5 goals in the game, which has paid out in each of their last nine matches away from home, including both away legs in the knockout stages of the Champions League.
