Inter travel to Spain to take on Atlético Madrid at the Estadio Cívitas Metropolitano in the second leg of the UEFA Champions League round of 16.

Simone Inzaghi’s side have a slight advantage heading into this match, coming away with a 1-0 win thanks to Marko Arnautović in the first leg at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza on Tuesday, February 20.

Inter dominated the first leg but was unable to take advantage of their opportunities. With a total xG (expected goals) of 2.30, Marko Arnautović gave the hosts the lead thanks to a rebound from a Lautaro Martínez shot. Atlético Madrid was held to zero shots on target, while Inter had nearly as many shots on target, 5, as Atléti managed shots the entire match, 7. The second leg is expected to be a completely different match with the Spanish supporters behind their team. An interesting statistic has surfaced ahead of the match: Atlético Madrid manager Diego Simeone has never lost a home match in the Champions League knockout stages.

Since the first leg, Inter have continued their 2024 winning streak and have not lost a match across all competitions since December 20, 2023. Atlético Madrid on the other hand, has only recorded two wins since the beginning of February. Simeone’s side is going through a rough patch, especially away from home, and will look to gain the trust of their fans back with a result in the Champions League.

According to SkySport Italy, Atlético Madrid is expected to line up as follows (3-5-2): Oblak; Witsel, Savić, Hermoso; Llorente, De Paul, Koke, Saúl, Samuel Lino; Morata, Correa.
