Atletico Madrid host Real Madrid in the second leg of the Champions League semi-finals this week and the home side will need a miraculous performance to get into the finals.
They lost 3-0 in the first leg and it will be interesting to see how they approach this game. Diego Simeone might need to abandon his defensively cautious approach for this one and go all out attack in order to cut down the deficit.
The home side will be without the services of Fernandez, Vrsaljko, Juanfran and Gimenez for this one.
Predicted Atletico Madrid Starting Lineup (4-4-2): Oblak; Hernandez, Savic, Godin, Luis; Koke, Gabi, Saul, Carrasco; Gameiro, Griezmann
Real Madrid Team News & Preview
Real Madrid are in an outstanding position in this tie and it would require a collapse of epic proportions from them to throw it all away.

The away side will be without Pepe, Bale and Carvajal for this one.
Predicted Real Madrid Starting Lineup (4-3-3): Navas; Nacho, Ramos, Varane, Marcelo; Kroos, Modric, Casemiro; Ronaldo, Benzema, James
