In the return match of the UCL quarterfinals, Josep Guardiola made a few changes after the last game against Liverpool in the EPL. Thus, one of the leaders in attack, Raheem Sterling, will start on the bench while his place is taken by Gundogan.
Atletico also comes with its strongest available players, with de Paul and Suarez out of the starting 11. Although the team needs to score at least once after the 1:0 at Etihad Stadium, there are still five defenders in the squad chosen by Diego Simeone.
The winner of this duel will play against Real Madrid, who passed Chelsea to reach the semifinal stage of the UCL 2021-22.
