Predicted Atlético Madrid XI vs Girona

Atlético Madrid host Girona at the Estadio Metropolitano this afternoon in the eighth round of La Liga, with kick-off scheduled at 4.15pm local time.

Following their disappointing 2-0 loss against Club Brugge over the weekend in the Champions League, Diego Simeone may opt to utilise a 4-3-3 formation in the interest of scoring goals against their Catalan opposition.

With the injury of Marcos Llorente midweek, the Argentine coach is expected to field Ángel Correa instead, who would partner with Álvaro Morata and Antoine Griezmann upfront.

Even though he picked up a knock against Brugge, José María Giménez should be fit to play today. Sergio Reguilón is yet to recover from an injury which he picked up in the summer.

Predicted Atlético Madrid line-up vs Sevilla

Mundo Deportivo predict that Simeone will field the following starting XI vs Girona: Jan Oblak – Nahuel Molina, José María Giménez, Mario Hermoso or Stefan Savić, Reinildo Mandava – Koke, Axel Witsel, Saúl Ñíguez – Ángel Correa, Álvaro Morata, Antoine Griezmann.
