Atlético Madrid vs. AC Milan: Preview and TV schedule

Marco Luzzani

After a 1-0 first leg win, Atléti just need to finish the job against Milan to advance to the Champions League quarterfinals.

Atlético Madrid return home to the Vicente Calderón with a chance to eliminate AC Milan and advance to the Champions League quarterfinals. Diego Costa's goal seven minutes from full time in the first leg at the San Siro have Los Colchoneros 90 minutes from moving on if they can finish the job.

Diego Simeone's side is busy on two fronts as they chase Champions League glory and a possible league title. Atléti looked a bit shaky over the weekend, needing two second half goals to overcome Celta Vigo. Diego Costa sat out of the match serving a yellow card ban so he'll be rested and ready for Milan.

Clarence Seedorf's time withe Milan has been challenging as the Rossoneri remain stuck in the Serie A mid-table. Getting knocked out of the Coppa Italia didn't help matter either but a comeback against Atléti would be a massive boost. Milan have lost their last two matches against Juventus and Udinese, failing to score a goal in either match.
