Atlético Madrid fans are preparing to find out who they will face in the semi-finals of the Champions League, with the draw made this morning at 11.30 CEST in Nyon.
After a pulsating victory over Barcelona on Wednesday night in Madrid, it’s going to be either a trip to Manchester, Munich or a stay-at-home trip to Madrid for Los Rojiblancos.
Manchester City, Bayern Munich and our eternal-rivals Real Madrid stand in the way of Atlético and a second Champions League final in two years. Each potential tie has a subplot.
Manchester City – the return of Sergio Agüero to the Vicente Calderón for the first time since leaving in 2011.
Bayern Munich – the first game between these two sides since the infamous European Cup final of 1974. An equaliser in the 119th minute of the final, to set up a replay two days later which we lost 4-0.
Real Madrid – enough said already.
The first leg of the semi-final will be played on either the 26th or 27th April, with the return played on either the 3rd or 4th of May.

@AtleticoFans It's going to be Real Madrid again, I can just feel it… Real Madrid vs Atletico and City v Bayern is great for UEFA!

@AtleticoFans Hoping for Real, they're owed some revenge. City would be fine as well, but there's no such thing as an 'easy' draw now.
