UEFA Champions League Starting XI: Atletico Madrid vs Real Madrid

By Keegan Kruger - May 10, 2017 07:37 PM @KeeganKruger

Atletico Madrid need to overturn a 3-0 deficit against crosstown rivals Real Madrid if they are to qualify for the UEFA Champions League final – here's how the two teams will line up.

UEFA Champions League

Teams: Atletico Madrid vs Real Madrid

Date: 10 May 2017

Venue: Vicente Calderon

Time: 8.45pm

This game will be the fifth meeting between the two teams in European competition, with Los Blancos having won all four previous ties.

Atletico will go into this game with some positives as they have won 29 of their past 35 European matches at the Vicente Calderon.

The Rojilancos are currently on a 10-game unbeaten streak at home in the UCL, winning eight of those matches and drawing the other two fixtures.

Atletico's record against Spanish opposition is a bit inconsistent as they have won eight, lost eight and drawn six matches against their countrymen.  

Los Blancos have made 27 European semi-finals, winning 14 of them.

Both sides will be missing a host of players for this fixture – Real will be without Pepe, Gareth Bale and Dani Carvajal, while Atletico will have Augusto Fernandez, Sime Vrsalijko, Juanfran and Jose Gimenez sidelined due to injury.

Here's how they line up:

Atletico: Oblak; Gimenez, Godin, Savic, Filipe; Gabi, Saul, Koke, Carrasco; Griezmann, Torres.

Real: Navas, Danilo, Ramos, Varane, Marcelo, Casemiro, Kroos, Modric, Isco, Cristiano Ronaldo, Benzema.
