Atletico Madrid vs Man City LIVE score and goal updates for Champions League clash

Manchester City are looking to set up a Champions League semi-final with Real Madrid, but must get past Atletico Madrid in tonight’s quarter-final second leg first.

City hold a narrow 1-0 lead from the first leg thanks to Kevin De Bruyne’s goal, with Atletico playing extremely defensively to keep themselves in the tie. Diego Simeone insists Atletico will play differently in this second leg, using the home crowd at the Wanda Metropolitano to their advantage.

Pep Guardiola says Ruben Dias has traveled to Madrid, but won’t start in the game, while Cole Palmer was also in contention to travel. Gabriel Jesus is suspended after picking up a third Champions League booking of the campaign in the first leg, but Kyle Walker is back after serving a three match suspension in Europe.

After Real Madrid just about held off Chelsea’s brilliant comeback last night, Carlo Ancelotti’s side await in the semi-finals if City can progress. However, they know just how difficult Atletico will be and Guardiola said he expected a more open game than the one-sided first leg.
