KICK off: 8 February 22:00
Information: Atletico will be without the services of Joao Felix, Moussa Dembele, Mario Hermoso and Yannick Carrasco on Monday as all four players have recently tested positive for coronavirus, while Kieran Trippier is still suspended. Felix’s absence in the final third could see Angel Correa earn a spot alongside Suarez, while Sime Vrsaljko is also in line to feature in a wing-back position for the league leaders. Saul Niguez could again keep out Renan Lodi on the left, and there are not expected to be many surprises elsewhere with Marcos Llorente, Koke and Thomas Lemar all set to feature once again. As for Celta, Sergio Alvarez and David Junca are still unavailable for selection through injury, but the visitors are otherwise in good shape heading into Monday’s contest. The bulk of the XI that started the goalless draw with Granada last time out should remain in place, with Brais Mendez, Nolito, Iago Aspas and Santi Mina all in line to feature. There could be a change in midfield, though, with Denis Suarez potentially coming in for Fran Beltran, which would allow Renato Tapia to again operate in a deeper position for the visitors.
