Atletico's Simeone returns to cherished Milan for acid Inter test

Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone returns to a happy hunting ground today at the San Siro, but must put feelings to the side in an intriguing Champions League last 16 clash with Inter Milan.

If Atletico are to break new ground this season, Simeone will have to lead them past his former - and potentially future - team. Victory in Europe has become Atletico's key goal as they lie a long way off the pace in the Spanish title race. Simeone rested Antoine Griezmann for the 5-0 win over Las Palmas on Saturday in La Liga, indicating where his priorities lie.

"I'm sure he'll be annoyed because he didn't play, I thought he needed a pause," explained Simeone. "We need a great Griezmann, and we need him fresh."

Simeone and Inzaghi both tend to line up with 3-5-2 formations and the matches promise to be an intriguing tactical battle.
