Atletico will again be without the services of Diego Costa and Sime Vrsaljko through injury, while Saul Niguez remains a doubt for the home side.

Jose Gimenez is yet to make a single appearance this season after being diagnosed with coronavirus and then picking up a muscular issue, but the centre-back was on the bench against Betis and could now make the XI.

Joao Felix started on the bench against Betis on Saturday but should return in the final third of the field, while Renan Lodi and Yannick Carrasco are also expected to make the XI.
