Atletico Madrid Team News and Predicted Lineup against Manchester City



Atletico Madrid vs Celta Vigo live stream Joao Felix

Atletico Madrid have a great chance of sealing a place in the Champions League last four when they take on City.

Diego Simeone knows that the same tactics that he used against the Citizens in Manchester won’t work to his benefit in Madrid. The reigning Spanish champions put out an ultra defensive display in their 1-0 defeat to Guardiola’s side.

However, you can expect them to play a more offensive brand of football at home. A 1-0 deficit is nothing to be worried about if you have the firepower. And the Colchoneros have enough of that. You can expect them to try and be more imaginative this time around.
