Atletico Madrid v Borussia Dortmund: Starting XIs for UCL quarter-final

Diego Simeone makes four changes to the Atletico Madrid team that won 2-1 at Villarreal last time out – some nine days ago.

Cesar Azpilicueta, Nahuela Molina, Rodrigo De Paul and Alvaro Morata all come into the XI.

Memphis Depay is one of those to drop out with an injury that is likely to rule him out of the second leg as well.

Atletico Madrid XI: Oblak, Gimenez, Witsel, Azpilicueta, Molina, Llorente, Koke, De Paul, Lino, Griezman, Morata.

Subs: Moldovan, Gomis, Paulista, Savic, Reinildo, Saul, Riquelme, Vermeeren, Barrios, Correa, El Jebari.

There is just one change to the Borussia Dortmund side that suffered a 1-0 home defeat by Stuttgart at the weekend.

Julian Brandt drops to the bench with Felix Nmecha replacing him in midfield.

Jadon Sancho starts but Marco Reus has to settle for a place on the bench.

Borussia Dortmund XI: Kobel, Ryerson, Hummels, Schlotterbeck, Maatsen, Sabitzer, Can, Nmecha, Sancho, Fullkrug, Adeyemi.

Subs: Meyer, Lotka, Ozcan, Haller, Reus, Duranville, Wolf, Moukoko, Brandt, Sule, Bynoe-Gittens.
