Estadio Wanda Metropolitano will host one of the biggest nights in its young history as Borussia Dortmund come to town on Tuesday night.
Atlético Madrid were humbled in the reverse fixture two weeks ago when the Bundesliga leaders produced a stunning display in a 4-0 thrashing. But LaLiga’s third-place side are out for revenge despite a couple new injuries and will pull level with Dortmund atop Group A with a victory.
Diego Simeone’s squad has not been released at the time of writing, but Koke and Diego Costa remain out with muscular injuries while Thomas Lemar on Stefan Savić have joined them on the shelf. The only doubt in Simeone’s XI for Tuesday seems to be whether Nikola Kalinić or Gelson Martins will start next to Antoine Griezmann — the latter played 87 minutes in Saturday’s 1-1 draw at Leganés. Juanfran will step in for Santiago Arias at right back, and Diego Godín might not be back as he continues his recovery from his own muscular malady — the captain did take training on Monday, though.
Oblak; Juanfran, Giménez, Lucas, Filipe Luís; Thomas P, Rodri, Correa, Saúl; Griezmann, Gelson.
Atlético 2-1 Dortmund.
