Atlético Madrid travel to Germany in order to face Bayer Leverkusen at the Bay Arena this evening with kick-off scheduled at 9pm local time.
It is believed that Diego Simeone will rotate his team from the one that defeated Celta Vigo 4-1 over the weekend. Koke, Marcos Llorente and João Félix are expected to return to the starting XI, while Stefan Savić, José María Giménez and Sergio Reguilón remain sidelined due to injuries.
It is not known whether Jan Oblak will start against Bayer Leverkusen. The Slovenian goalkeeper travelled with the squad to Germany, but Ivo Grbić might have to take his place between the sticks if he does not feel comfortable playing the match.
AS expect Diego Simeone to field the following starting XI vs Bayer Leverkusen: Ivo Grbić/Jan Oblak – Nahuel Molina, Axel Witsel, Mario Hermoso, Reinildo Mandava, Yannick Carrasco – Marcos Llorente, Geoffrey Kondogbia, Koke – Álvaro Morata, João Félix.
