Team News

Real Madrid
Madrid will again be without the services of Dani Carvajal through injury, while Alvaro Odriozola, Marcelo and Mariano Diaz are all unlikely to be available for the home side.

Casemiro, meanwhile, is suspended due to the booking that he picked up in the first leg, meaning that Federico Valverde could operate alongside Luka Modric and Toni Kroos as part of a midfield three.

Sergio Ramos made his return from injury against Elche and should feature once again, but Eden Hazard is expected to be among the substitutes with Marco Asensio and Vinicius Junior either side of Benzema.
Real Madrid possible starting lineup:
Courtois; Vazquez, Varane, Ramos, Mendy; Kroos, Valverde, Modric; Asensio, Benzema, Vinicius

Atalanta, meanwhile, will be without the services of Hans Hateboer due to a fractured foot, while Freuler is suspended due to the red card that he picked up in the first leg.

Duvan Zapata started on the bench against Spezia in the league on Friday but will be back in the side for this game, while Cristian Romero should return in the middle of the defence.

Freuler's spot from the first leg is expected to be taken by Mario Pasalic, who scored twice against Spezia, while Zapata will be joined in the final third of the field by the team's leading scorer this season Luis Muriel.

Gollini; Toloi, Romero, Djimsiti; Maehle, De Roon, Pasalic, Gosens; Pessina; Muriel, Zapata
