If last week’s encounter is anything to go by, today's Atlético Madrid vs Manchester City live stream will be a close, tense affair.
Atléti put up typically stern resistance in the first leg of this Champions League quarter-final, frustrating Manchester City with their legitimate (and less legitimate) ways of breaking up play. A moment of combined brilliance from substitute Phil Foden and Kevin De Bruyne was needed to separate the two teams, and it means the visitors head to the Wanda Metroplitano with a 0-1 aggregate advantage.

The atmosphere at that ground is usually intense, but Atlético Madrid have been punished with a partial stadium closure following the behaviour of some of their fans during the first leg. UEFA has demanded the closure of a section of the stadium that has at least 5000 seats in it.
The sides both endured tough weekends. Manchester City kept their noses in front at the top of the Premier League after a scintillating clash with title rivals Liverpool. Atlético Madrid suffered a poor 1-0 defeat away to Real Mallorca, who sit towards the bottom of the La Liga table.
Renan Lodi and Hector Herrera missed that game through injury and are unlikely to be available for the Atlético Madrid vs Manchester City live stream. However, Stefan Savic should be back. The visitors have no new injuries following the weekend, and Kyle Walker is also available for them following the completion of his European suspension.
Last week’s match was the fourth time Diego Simeon’s side have lost the first leg in a Champions League knockout tie. They have, though, progressed on two of the previous three occasions. They overcame Barcelona 3-2 on aggregate in 2016 and Bayern Leverkusen thanks to penalties in 2015.
Manchester City have never faced Alético Madrid away from home and have won just three of their last 11 matches away to Spanish teams. Manager Pep Guardiola has visited Atlético Madrid on six previous occasions, winning three and losing three. Here's how they line up:
Atl Madrid: Oblak, Llorente, Savic, Felipe, Mandava, Lodi dos Santos, Koke, Kondogbia, Lemar, Sequeira, Griezmann
Manchester City: Ederson, Walker, Stones, Laporte, Cancelo, De Bruyne, Rodri, Gündogan, Mahrez, Foden, Bernardo Silva
