Atlético Madrid take on Celtic In the Champions League on Wednesday night. Diego Simeone’s side defeated Celta Vigo 3-0 in La Liga on Saturday night thanks to an Antoine Griezmann hat-trick. We take a look at how Atlético could set up against Brendan Rodgers’ side at Celtic Park.
Defender Stefan Savic has trained again after missing out in Vigo through injury and is expected to come back into the team. The starting eleven could have up to four changes from the weekend win at Balaídos, with the Argentina World Cup winners set to return to the fold.
Nahuel Molina is expected to start at right-back, with Rodrigo de Paul in midfield alongside club captain Koke and fellow Spaniard Saúl. Former Celta player Javi Galán could get the nod to play on the left flank.

Here is how Atlético could start:
