Atletico Madrid face Deportiu Reus in the first round of their Copa del Rey and travelled to Catalonia without Gabi and Griezmann in what looks like an effort to rest many of their players. You can read a full preview here with quotes from Simeone and a look at their unknown opponents.
Atletico are, of course, without their star man in midfield with news that Tiago broke his leg in the weekend's win over Espanyol. It will be a good chance for Simeone to try a different midfield pivot pairing and will give fans an insight into how Cholo will cope without the Portuguese tempo-setter.
Lucas Hernandez, a player who featured heavily in preseason and acquitted himself excellently looks set to make his first start. Thomas Partey, who made a very good cameo in Atletico's victory at the weekend is poised to make his first official start under Diego Simeone.
