Atletico Madrid vs Inter: Preview, kick-off time and where to watch on TV and online – Champions League 2023/24 

Inter are taking a slender advantage to the Spanish capital where they face Atletico Madrid in the Champions League round of 16, and will need a professional performance to book a place in the quarter-finals.

Inter have something to protect coming into the second leg of their Champions League Round of 16 fixture against Atletico Madrid, having won the first leg 1-0 at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza.

However, the Spanish outfit will be no pushovers. They are currently unbeaten at the Wanda Metropolitan Stadium in La Liga this season, and they will hope that their home crowd can spur them onto an important victory, especially after their disappointing loss to Cadiz at the weekend.

Under Simone Inzaghi, Inter have become one of the best sides in Europe, and there are few better ways to prove that they deserve to be in the latter stages than earning a positive result away at Diego Simeone‘s side.

Atletico Madrid vs Inter: Predicted line-ups

After recovering from his recent injury, Antoine Griezmann looks set to return to Simeone’s starting lineup to partner Alvaro Morata. The Frenchman has 17 contributions in 24 La Liga appearances this season, and Inter will need to nullify him again if they are to progress.

Having rested Lautaro Martinez in the Serie A win against Bologna, Inzaghi will recall the Argentine to the starting lineup, and it is likely he will partner Marcus Thuram – the Frenchman played 65 minutes of the clash against Bologna and then was substituted for Marko Arnautovic, likely to ensure he is ready for Wednesday’s clash.

After scoring the pivotal goal in the clash against the Rossoblu, Yann Bisseck will be placed back on the bench, with Inzaghi set to bring Benjamin Pavard back into the fray. Furthermore, Federico Dimarco looks likely to reclaim his spot on the left wing.

Atletico Madrid predicted XI vs Inter (3-5-2): Oblak; Witsel, Hermoso, Gabriel Paulista; Marcos Llorente, Barrios, Koke, De Paul, Lino; Morata, Griezmann.

Inter predicted XI vs Atletico Madrid (3-5-2): Sommer; Pavard, Acerbi, Bastoni; Darmian, Barella, Calhanoglu, Mkhitaryan, Dimarco; Thuram, Lautaro.
