Atlético Madrid travel to San Sebastián (Donostia) to face Real Sociedad this afternoon at 18.30 local time.
Stefan Savić, Thomas Lemar, Sergio Reguilón and Matheus Cunha are expected to miss the game due to injuries, while Nahuel Molina is suspended.
Due to absences, Atléti coach Diego Simeone had to call up players from the youth squad, including goalkeeper Antonio Gomis, full-back Sergio Díez and midfielder Alberto Moreno.
Antonio Griezmann is expected to be on the bench and come on for the last 30 minutes of the match so that the club do not activate his €40m buy-out clause.
New signings Alexander Sørloth and Umar Sadiq are expected to make an appearance for Real Sociedad this evening as they hope to cause an upset at the Estadio de Anoeta.
AS predict that Simeone will field the following starting XI vs Real Sociedad: Jan Oblak – Fernando Llorente, José Maria Giménez, Axel Witsel, Reinildo Mandava, Yannick Carrasco – Geoffrey Kondogbia, Koke, Ridrigo De Paul – João Félix and Álvaro Morata.
