Atletico Madrid will take on Real Madrid in the first leg of the Champions League quarter final clash at Vicente Calderon on 14 April.

Where to watch live

Kick-off is at 7.45pm BST. Live coverage of the match will be available on ITV1 and UTV.


Ateltico made it to the last eight of Europe's elite club competition after knocking Bayer Leverkusen out of the competition on penalties. The first leg went to the Bundesliga outfit's favour, before the La Liga winners settled the score in the return leg, forcing the course of the game to be decided on penalties.

So far this season, Ateltico have enjoyed great success against Real after defeating them in the Spanish Super Cup and in the league at Santiago Bernabeu. Diego Simeone will be looking to seal another victory over Atletico's derby rivals on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, Real progressed to the quarter finals of the Champions League after defeating Schalke 5-4 on aggregate. Despite their qualification, the reigning champions suffered a 3-4 defeat at home in the return leg against the German outfit.

The good news for Carlo Ancelotti's side is that they have enjoyed a great run in the last three games, scoring 14 goals and conceding only one goal in the process. The Italian manager will be looking for a similar performance when his side take on Ateltico for the Champions League clash.

What managers say

Diego Simeone: "The second half was so crazy [against Malaga], it wasn't good for us. It's an important result for our league campaign. We drew and we were not that bad. This year we have changed a lot but we can still compete. This is an important point that allows us to carry on."

Carlo Ancelotti: "He's [Ronaldo] really enjoying his football again because the team are playing with more speed and that gives him more freedom in front of goal. That's the difference between him and other strikers."
