Atlético Madrid host Valladolid at the Estadio Metropolitano in the 18th round of La Liga later today.
Los Colchoneros are hoping to bounce back in the league following their 1-1 draw against Almería in Andalucía last week.
Midfielder Axel Witsel will most likely start as a centre-back as Stefan Savić is still serving a suspension after picking up a red card two weeks ago against Barcelona.
Mario Hermoso is expected to partner with Witsel at the heart of Atlético Madrid’s defence as José María Giménez is still sidelined with an injury.
Memphis Depay may make his debut for Los Colchoneros at some point in the game.
Predicted Atlético Madrid lineup against Valladolid
AS predict that Diego Simeone will field the following starting XI against Valladolid: Jan Oblak – Nahuel Molina, Axel Witsel, Mario Hermoso, Reinildo Mandava – Marcos Llorente, Koke, Geoffrey Kondogbia, Thomas Lemar – Ángel Correa, Antoine Griezmann.
The match is set to kick off at 6.30 pm local time.
