Manchester City head to Atletico Madrid on Wednesday for the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final tie holding a slender 1-0 advantage. Atlético Madrid knew that Manchester City would be a tough UEFA Champions League (UCL) quarter-final adversary. That was illustrated by Diego Simeone’s cynical defensive formation during last week’s first leg, designed to blunt City’s scoring power. It somewhat worked, with Atlético returning home to Madrid with just a 1-0 first-leg defeat to overcome.

Atletico Madrid should be better with home advantage in the return fixture, and City go into the game on the back of an energy-sapping 2-2 draw with Liverpool where they twice squandered a lead. They will hope to make the most of the second leg at their own backyard as they planned doing that from the way they approached the first leg.
Their weekend La Liga trip to Mallorca didn’t go to plan though (L 0-1), capping off the first time since September 2021 that Simeone’s side were held scoreless in consecutive games across all competitions. Atleti have hit a dip in form at the wrong time as they slipped to a 1-0 loss over the weekend and they have struggled at home in this competition all season.
To further highlight the difficulty of the task they face here, Atlético have also failed to win their last six UCL home matches (D3, L3).
This is Manchester City’s fifth consecutive UCL quarter-final appearance, and their one-goal advantage from the first leg has them primed to qualify for back-to-back UEFA semi-finals for the first time in more than half a century.
Whilst a draw will be enough to secure progression, the commemoration of their 100th UCL match (from group stage to finals) will serve as additional motivation to win, as could City’s hard-fought 2-2 weekend draw with Liverpool that kept them top of the Premier League and in charge of the title race.
However, travelling has not been City’s strong point this UCL campaign, demonstrated by losses at PSG (L 0-2) and Leipzig (L 1-2) in the group stage. They do, however, come into this game after winning their last four UEFA knockout stage away legs at an opposition’s venue, and have put together a 12-game unbeaten away run across all competitions (W10, D2) since that group stage loss in Leipzig.
