EUROPA: Madrid Look To Qualify For Final

Valencia will play Atletico Madrid in the second leg of Europa league at Estadio de Mestalla. Diego Simeone’s side has a 2-0 valuable advantage from the first leg and it is expected that in spite of playing groundaway, this advantage could come handy for qualifying for the final.
Valencia coach Unai Emery is certainly under pressure after the first leg and has labeled the match against Atletico Madrid as the biggest game of his career.
Emery said: "It is the biggest game of my career, for many players too. He added saying "We have to control our anxiety. We work best without thinking about anything else.''
After the first Leg in Europa League Semifinal, both the sides have played one match each in La Liga, where both have registered a comfortable victory against their opponents. Valencia beat Real Betis by 4-0 while Atletico Madrid beat Espanyol by 3-1.
Both the sides will go into this game confident after their wins in La Liga over the weekend and undoubtedly will make all possible efforts to outclass each other. Atletico Madrid will try and repeat their 2010 performance, when they ended up lifting the trophy.
