With a 1-0 win in the away leg, La Liga titleholders Real Madrid have the edge going into this UEFA Champions League round of 16 second-leg tie against Atalanta. Can the Bergamo-based side turn things around? Don't miss a moment with our Real Madrid vs Atalanta live stream guide.

In their last meeting, Real Madrid secured a narrow 1-0 win which gives them not only an aggregate lead but an away goal advantage as they try to book their spot in the Champions League quarter-finals.

It was a tight game last time out with Los Blancos missing a number of key players and only stealing the win in the 86th minute. Atalanta spent the majority of the game playing with ten men after Remo Freuler saw red in the 17th minute.

Since their last Champions League game, Real are unbeaten in three games including a 1-1 draw in the Madrid derby at Atlético. Though Zinedine Zidane's have not been beaten in their last seven league outings, the Whites are still six points off the pace in this year's title race.

Atalanta have played four games since that Champions League defeat against Real Madrid, winning three. La Dea remain very much a part of the battle for qualification spots for next year's Champions League, sitting in fourth place in Serie A as things stand.

Last season saw Atalanta's first appearance in the Champions League with the side reaching the quarter-final stage. Gian Piero Gasperini's men will want to match that by overturning a 1-0 aggregate deficit today in Madrid and maybe go one better by progressing to the latter stages.

With the game on a knife edge, it looks set to be an entertaining game. Read on for full details on how to get a live stream of this UEFA Champions League clash between Real Madrid and Atalanta with our guide below.
