Predicted Atlético Madrid XI vs Rayo Vallecano

Atlético Madrid host local rivals Rayo Vallecano from the southern part of the Spanish capital at the Estadio Metropolitano this evening in the 10th round of La Liga, with kick-off scheduled at 9pm local time.

Jan Oblak is set to miss Los Colchoneros’ midweek game due to a concussion that he picked up against Athletic Bilbao over the weekend.

Antoine Griezmann, who is the club’s joint-top scorer this season alongside Álvaro Morata, will most likely start after he scored the winner against Los Leones.

Diego Simeone is expected to rotate his midfield, with Thomas Lemar and Rodrigo De Paul expected to make way for Saúl Ñíguez and Ángel Correa respectively.
