KICK off: 7 December 22:00
Team news: Porto midfielder Mateus Uribe is suspended for this battle due to an accumulation of yellow cards, so Marko Grujic and Sergio Oliveira should form the pairing in the engine room here. Pepe is still touch and go with his muscular problem but is reportedly making every effort to be fit for Tuesday, although Ivan Marcano and Joao Mario are set to miss out. Marchesin will expect to be handed the gloves back from Diogo Costa, while Fabio Cardoso will start in defence alongside Chancel Mbemba if Pepe does not make the cut. Meanwhile, Atletico defender Felipe is banned following his matchday four sending-off against Liverpool, and Stefan Savic came off with a hamstring problem 13 minutes into the defeat to Mallorca. With Jose Gimenez also struggling with a muscular issue, Geoffrey Kondogbia and Mario Hermoso could form an emergency centre-back pairing for Atletico as Thomas Lemar rejoins the troops in the middle. Luis Suarez and Joao Felix were both left on the bench for the meeting with Mallorca, but Simeone will surely consider reintroducing both men from the off this week.
