Final sub for the blues
In an attempt to try and find a goal, Demi Stokes has left the field for Pauline Bremer
Atletico Substitution
Star player Sampedro comes on and takes the armband replacing Ludmilla da silva
Lee Geum-min enters the field for City replacing Georgi Stanway whilst Mesegeur comes on for Charlyn Corral
City are denied only by the crossbar from Megan Campbell's header
It's a worrying looking Injury for Lauren Hemp with the young winger on the ground and motionless. She is currently receiving treatment from the club's medical staff whilst grasping her shoulder.
2-0!
Charlyn Corral is denied by an amazing stop from Ellie Roebuck, but the rebound falls to Sosa who smashes the ball home to now force Manchester City to have to score two to find anything from this game
Booking for Ludmilla
Ludmilla da Silva finds herself in the book after she brought down Lauren Hemp when the youngster was breaking forward
City Substirution
Still finding her way back to full fitness, Ellen White has now been taken off in the place of Janine Beckie who opened the scoring at the CFA in the first leg
Yellow card for Campbell
A slightly soft booking after seeing the replay, Ludmilla da Silva is brought down by Megan Campbell and the referee provides the Irish international with a caution for her foul
How have City not scored!
Ellen White once again with the opportunity to level the scoring. She is denied by Sari van Veenendall inside of the box, and the deflection up off the dutch international's leg was headed towards goal before it was narrowly cleared by Tounkara
Another good opportunity for City to level the scoring. Ellen White gets the ball taken off of her just before she was about to strike inside of the box by Menayo
Ellie Roebuck finds herself tested for the first time of the match. Charlyn Corral broke through on the left wing for Atletico and her shot to the near post was stopped by the City keeper
Close from Scott!
A good one-two from the blues sees Demi Stokes break open and play a ball in. Jill Scott is just able to meet this but her header flies over the bar with a lack of direction - it could have possible been a better option to let it fall to Lauren Hemp behind her.
Georgia Stanway and Lauren Hemp seem to have changed sides for the away team for the second half, with the Barrow born attacker now on the left
The second half commences!
Manchester City get us underway once again and are trailing 1-0 in this match (2-1 agg). The blues are still searching for a crucial away goal that would allow them to see the game play into extra time and possibly penalties
Half-time
No added time at the end of the first half and the referee blows her whistle to signal the break
Atletico open
An absolutely calamitous mistake at the back from Steph Houghton turned in Ludmilla da Silva's shot which looked as if it was not going to have gone into the goal anyway.

 

The initial cross to the Atletico player was strong, but the shot deflected off the blues' captain's foot and then head before going into the net.

City struggling to create in front of goal
Nick Cushing's blues have struggled to create much going forward just as they did against Arsenal. It's been a recurring problem against the stronger teams, and even with White the squad are now looking just out of place going forward.

White comes close again to finding a breakthrough, but is adjudged to be offside shortly after the ball is played through
City's defence has already shown that it is solidifying even without Aoife Mannion, and have been able to hold off any attempts from the opposition
Tounkara comes close from the resulting set-piece and her headed effort is only cleared away by Georgia Stanway who puts it behind for another corner.

Nothing was able to come from the second

Corner for Madrid
Caroline Weir's backpass is too heavy and the ball reaches the touchline before Megan Campbell can stop it
Both sides are showing strong build up play and are holding off the opposition, but neither have been able to break through and produce anything of merit yet
Spaniards getting into the game
Madrid are starting to find their footing on the match and have troubled their opposition for the past couple of minutes, especially in their quick play going forwards.

City's grip on the game is slowly loosening whilst they are still searching for a crucial away goal.

Atletico break
The spanish side found themselves with an opportunity in the box after Toni Duggan ran through. She was stopped by Jill Scott, but Keira Walsh brought down the player who the ball fell to.

Virginia's long range attempt from the free-kick did not result in anything.

Yellow card for Stanway
Sloppy there from the young striker, she holds onto an opposition player who was trying to break and drags them down to the ground, receiving a booking from the referee for doing so.

 

Strong start for the Blues
City have definitely looked on top in this opening quarter of an hour, beating their Spanish counterparts on the left wing with Lauren Hemp impressing.

 

Atletico have struggled to get forward, but the blues' opportunities have not yet been properly capitalised on

Chance! White comes close
After a brilliant ball through which cut open the defence, Ellen White found herself one-on-one with Van Veenendaal but her shot fell just wide of the far post
Corner for City
Manchester City found themselves with a corner in the eighth minute, but nothing was able to come from it
Could White be the difference
It has already been end-to-end in the six minutes of this game. The addition of Ellen White and Georgia Stanway could help the blues to be more cinical and convert chances that they have missed in other matches.

Game sold out
Atletico Madrid announced on Wednesday that the Centro Deportivo Wanda Alcalá de Henares is sold out for the UWCL Round of 16 tie.

It's a landmark for the Women's game to see sides packing out their normal grounds, unlike often when it is done as a 'one-off' in the men's stadium.

Bremer thinks desire key to UWCL success
Prolific German forward Pauline Bremer spoke to the press on Wednesday:

“The Champions League is special,” she declared. “You don’t have to say a lot to motivate everyone. I’ve won it twice with Lyon and we always had a great team with a big desire to win – that’s really important.

“No matter what conditions you play in or the opposition you play against, you always need to believe you can win the game. That was really strong with Lyon but I also feel that belief in this team.

“We all know what’s on the game. It’s a really important game."

Atletico Madrid: Team news

Manchester City: Team news
World Cup star Ellen White made her debut for the blues on Sunday after missing the start of the season due to a knee injury. Georgia Stanway also looks to be back fit, and has featured in their past two matches.

Could Atletico be unnerved by looming strike?
The fixture was initially in doubt by many, with Spanish female footballers threatening strike action in an argument with the AFF over minimum pay and working conditions.

It has not been decided that this will start on the weekend of the 17th November, with many 193 signing a pact to strike indefinitely

City looking to bounce back
Nick Cushing's side fell to fellow title challengers Arsenal on Sunday, Vivianne Miedema the difference.

City's fortunes have seemed to dip after an incredibly strong start and the side have now not won in three games, as well as losing the Manchester Derby 2-0 at Leigh Sports Village in which midfielder Keira Walsh saw red and received a three match ban for a dangerous tackle.

Recap the first leg:
The spoils were shared in a 1-1 draw in Manchester two weeks ago, meaning that today's game will decide who reaches the quarterfinals.

Kick-off time 18:30
The Atletico Madrid vs Manchester City match will be played at the Centro Deportivo Wanda Alcalá de Henares
