Real and Atletico are set to lock horns again in the knockout stages of the Champions League.

The two Madrid clubs have contested two of the last three European Cup finals, with Real coming out on top on both occasions after each match finished 1-1 in normal time.

Another nail biter is expected this time around, while the return leg will be the final European night at the Vicente Calderón before Atletico move to a new stadium next season.

Revenge will certainly be a motivation for Atletico boss Diego Simeone. His side were seconds away from lifting the trophy in 2014 before Sergio Ramos’s 94th minute equaliser took the game to extra-time. Goals from Gareth Bale, Marcelo and Cristiano

Ronaldo would ensure victory for the Blancos and break Atleti hearts in the process.

Two years later and they went almost as close again, this time being denied on penalties having pushed their city rivals all the way through a tense encounter in Milan.

This time around Atletico will feel their chances have been boosted by the news Wales international Bale will miss both legs with a calf injury.

However, stopping Ronaldo will be just vital. The Portuguese scored five times over the two games against Bayern Munich in the quarter final and the 32-year-old loves the big stage.

Simeone’s team will certainly look to keep things tight and, having conceded just 25 goals in La Liga all season, will back themselves to cope with the remaining two thirds of Real’s famous front line that also includes Frenchmen Karim Benzima.

They will also need their own superstars to fire, with Antoine Griezmann set to lead the line with Kevin Gameiro providing support.

If they can stay in the tie after the first leg they will fancy their chances of progressing to the final once again.

Team news

Atletico were dealt a blow when defender Jose Gimenez was injured in the second-half of Las Palmashis weekend’s 5-0 thrashing of Las Palmas.

The Rojiblancos are already without Sime Vrsaljko and Juanfran and Simeone will need to reshuffle his defence for the trip across town.

Yannick Ferreira Carrasco trained on Sunday and the Belgian international could feature.

For Real, Bale has been ruled out of both legs with a calf injury while centre-back Pepe is also out of Tuesday night’s clash with a broken rib.

Did you know?

The two teams have played each other twice in La Liga this season. Zinedine Zidane’s side triumphed 3-0 at the Vicente Calderón Stadium in November while honours were shared when the teams clashed at the Santiago Bernabéu last month.

A familiar referee

Premier League referee Martin Atkinson will be in charge for Tuesday night’s tie after impressing UEFA with his performances in the competition this season.
