Date: Wednesday, April 27 2016 - Time: 2:45 PM
Venue: Estadio Vicente Calderon, Madrid, Spain 
Referee: M. Clattenburg

Atletico Madrid team qualified for the semi-finals courtesy of a 3-2 aggregate win against FC Barcelona. Their overall record in Champions League this season is 6 wins, 2 draws and 2 defeats. The Colchoneros were 1-0 winners at home against Malaga, keeping a clean sheet once again. They have conceded just seven in 17 league games at home, and just two in five in the UCL.
Atleti are without veteran center-back Diego Godin due to a hamstring injury and Lucas Hernandez is expected to partner Gimenez at the heart of the defence. Fernando Torres returns after serving his one match ban and is expected to partner Antoine Griezmann in the attacking front.
Bayern Munich team have won nine of their last 10 games following a 2-0 success at Hertha Berlin on Saturday and they are closing in on another Bundesliga crown. In Champions League, the German champions needed a remarkable comeback plus extra-time to dispatch Juventus in the Round of 16, and could only win 3-2 on aggregate against Benfica in the previous round. They are winless in their last seven away games in the UEFA Champions League knockout stages (four draws, three losses).
Holger Badstuber and Arjen Robben are the only missing players for the Bavarians. At the heart of defense, Javi Martinez and Alaba is expected to start as Jerome Boateng has not played since hurting his groin in January and Sebastian Rode could miss out because of illness. Up front Franck Ribery, Thiago Alcantara, Thomas Muller and Douglas Costa will support Robert Lewandowski.

Probable lineups
Atletico Madrid: Oblak – Juanfran, Gimenez, Lucas Hernandez, Filipe Luis – Gabi, A.Fernandez, Saul Niguez, Koke – Griezmann, F.Torres.
Bayern Munich: Neuer – Lahm, Kimmich, J.Martinez, Alaba – Xabi Alonso – D.Costa, Vidal, T.Muller, Ribery – Lewandowski.
