Simeone opts to play a three-man defence, with Torres partnering Griezmann in attack. Zidane replaces Carvajal with Danilo.

Real Madrid travel to Atlético this evening with a 3-0 advantage from the Champions League semi-final first leg at the Bernabéu.

Atlético Madrid

AS understands that Diego Simeone will overcome his problems at right-back by opting for a 3-5-2 formation. Giménez, Godin, and Savic form a solid-looking back three.

At right wing-back, Carrasco will be key. The Belgian flyer is not a naturally-defensive player, and he will need to be alert to the threat of Marcelo. 

Torres partners Griezmann in attack.

Atlético XI: Oblak; Giménez, Godin, Savic; Carrasco, Koke, Saúl, Gabi, Filipe Luis; Torres, Griezmann.

Coach: Diego 'El Cholo' Simeone

Real Madrid

Zinedine Zidane has chosen to bring in Danilo at right-back to replace the inkured Dani Carvajal. 

Real Madrid's line up is according to expectation. As in the first leg, Isco will join Benzema and Ronaldo in attack.

Real Madrid XI: Keylor; Danilo, Varane, Ramos, Marcelo; Casemiro, Modric, Kroos; Isco, Benzema, Ronaldo.

Coach: Zinedine Zidane
