Atlético Madrid travel to Andalucía to face Almería later today in the 17th round of La Liga.
Diego Simeone is expected to make a couple of changes to the side that lost to Barcelona 1-0 last weekend at the Estadio Metropolitano.
Stefan Savić is serving a two-match suspension after being sent off against the Blaugrana, meaning midfielder Axel Witsel will most likely be playing as a centre-back instead. The Belgian is predicted to start alongside Mario Hermoso, as José María Giménez is still sidelined with an injury.
Ángel Correa will probably take the place of João Félix, who joined Chelsea earlier this week.
Predicted Atlético Madrid lineup against Almería
AS predict that Simeone will field the following starting XI against Almería: Jan Oblak – Nahuel Molina, Axel Witsel, Mario Hermoso, Reinildo Mandava – Marcos Llorente, Geoffrey Kondogbia, Koke, Thomas Lemar – Antoine Griezmann, Ángel Correa.
The match is set to kick off at 4.15 pm local time.
