Last week's chastening 3-0 defeat at the Bernabeu left Atletico needing a repeat of their sensational 4-0 win over their fierce local rivals in La Liga in 2015 to prevent a fourth straight European defeat by Real side who have not lost by more than one goal this campaign.

Madrid also play the second leg of their Champions League semi-final against Atletico Madrid midweek.

Madrid is trying to win its 12th Champions League title, while Atletico is looking for its first.

"We're going to approach the second leg just as any other game, to go out strong and give everything", Zidane told a news conference ahead of Wednesday's game at the Vicente Calderon.

AS adds that the final deal could be completed for €30m - €6m more than the release clause - due to an agreement between Real Madrid and Atletico over cross-city transfers.

"We're going to approach the second leg the same way we have done every game - to start strongly to try to win the game, that's our aim", he said.

"If they score the tie is even more hard, but a goal in the first-half would give us a lot of strength and could make them nervous".

Even after scoring hattricks against Bayern Munich in the quarterfinals and Atletico last week, Real's all-time top goalscorer Cristiano Ronaldo said "all he wanted" from the home fans was not to be jeered. "We still have to play a flawless game in the second leg on Wednesday and then we have three finals in La Liga".

At the time, Atletico was already touted as the third force in Spanish soccer under coach Diego Simeone, and three of the goals scored on that cold day in the Spanish capital came from players still on the team - Tiago Cardoso, Saul Niguez and Antoine Griezmann.

The Portugal global departed the club after a trophy-laden spell that had seen him win three Premier League titles and the Champions League in 2008. We may have beaten them in two finals but it will still be a different game. You can find out more about the stadium on the official site. Your best bet is to check who is broadcasting the game in your country and see if they have an online platform or iOS or Android app to watch it through.

Hernandez's agent, Manuel Garcia Quilon, says that the final decision will lie in the player's own hands. We will respect all our opponents as we always do.
