Atletico Madrid and Man City will lock horns in the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final tie at the Wanda Metropolitano as Diego Simeone's side look to reverse a 1-0 deficit from the first leg.

Atletico Madrid team news

Yannick Carrasco returned to the Atleti squad in their 1-0 defeat to Mallorca at the weekend, with the Belgian being gradually eased back into affairs after testing positive for Covid-19 in February.

Renan Lodi, Joao Felix and Thomas Lemar all came off the bench with the visit of the Cityzens in mind, although Jose Gimenez and Hector Herrera are likely to be unavailable for Simeone's side.


Man City team news

Not only did the result tighten City's grip on top spot in the Premier League, but Guardiola will have been pleased to emerge from the 2-2 draw with Liverpool with no fresh injury concerns.

Indeed, Ruben Dias and Cole Palmer remain the only absentees for the Cityzens, with Kyle Walker set to return from his three-match ban in the competition.


Atletico Madrid vs Man City score prediction

Kevin De Bruyne's second half strike in Manchester changes the complexion of the tie heading to Madrid, with Simeone's side now required to show more attacking endeavour in order to get back into proceedings.

Atleti failed to fashion a shot in the first leg but, backed by a buoyant home crowd, they should be able to test the City rearguard with more purpose.

Still, Guardiola's side have become accustomed to managing these ties - as they showed against Borussia Dortmund and PSG last season - so expect them to emerge by a single goal.

Prediction: Atletico Madrid 0-1 Man City
