Atlético Madrid travel to Galicia to face CD Arenteiro in the round of last 64 of the Copa del Rey.
Having been knocked out of all European competitions and trailing La Liga leaders Barcelona by 13 points already, the Copa del Rey remains the only competition that Los Colchoneros could realistically win this season. Therefore Diego Simeone is not expected to rest his key players for the fixture later today.
Nonetheless, youngster Pablo Barrios will most likely start ahead of João Félix and Matheus Cunha, who are both linked with a move away from the club this coming January.
Predicted Atlético Madrid lineup against CD Arenteiro
AS predict that Simeone will field the following starting XI against CD Arenteiro: Jan Oblak – Marcos Llorente, Stefan Savić, José María Giménez, Mario Hermoso – Koke, Axel Witsel, Thomas Lemar – Álvaro Morata, Pablo Barrios.
The match is set to kick off at 9 pm CET.
