Nick Cushing's side host the Spanish Champions at the Academy Stadium in the first leg, as the two sides lock horns for the second consecutive European campaign.

Atletico emerged victorious in 2018/19 with a 3-1 aggregate triumph, and City will be determined to gain a strong advantage to take to Madrid in the away leg in a fortnight's time.

The session was open to press and the team played up to the camera, as Keira Walsh, Georgia Stanway, Janine Beckie and Aoife Mannion instigated a game of 'pancake', practising their control.
