Man City to win again
The first leg of this tie might have only ended 1-0 to Man City but anyone who watched the match would know that City murdered Atletico Madrid for the entirety of the game. In our view, Man City weren't at their best either and that is a scary thought for the hosts heading into this tie. Man City know nothing but attack so you know how they'll approach this match. Atletico Madrid will look to soak up that pressure but, eventually, they'll need to find a goal unless they want to limp out of the competition; when that happens, City should pick them off.
Don't expect free flowing action
We've already spoken about how both teams will likely approach this match; it's just going to be the first leg all over again – at least it will be for 95% of the match. With that considered, it's hard to imagine this game being loaded with goals. Recent form backs up a low scoring encounter too. Atletico Madrid have gone under 2.5 goals in four of their last five games whilst Man City have fallen south of the 2.5 mark in four of their last five away matches.

Atletico Madrid vs Man City: Let's look at the predicted lineups

Atletico Madrid Predicted Lineup
Atletico Madrid received a lot of criticism for how they approached the first leg of this tie but they will not care one bit. They're still in the game and with home advantage and with Man City coming into this game off the back of a big clash in the Premier League they will fancy their chances of snatching something using.
Predicted lineup – Oblak, Lodi, Mandava, Savic, Felipe, Vrsaljko, Koke, Kondogbia, Llorente, Felix, Griezmann
Man City Predicted Lineup
The lack of a Champions League title is something that is constantly held over this Man City team and their boss, Pep Guardiola. They will feel they've got one foot in the semi-finals after finding a breakthrough in the first leg. Now you feel only a mistake from City will allow Atletico back in – but this Man City do have ricks in them.
Predicted lineup – Ederson, Walker, Stones, Laporte, Cancelo, Rodri, De Bruyne, Gundogan, Mahrez, Foden, Sterling
