Atletico Madrid

Jan Oblak; Mario Hermoso, Jose Gimenez, Felipe; Kieran Tripper, Saul Niguez, Koke, Marcos Llorente, Yannick Carrasco; Angel Correa, Luis Suarez

Real Valladolid

The home side are coming into this game on the back of three consecutive defeats in the League and the chance of an upset seems highly unlikely.

 Real Valladolid are currently 19th in the League table and they could still survive the drop if they manage to win here. That said, they will need some of the other results to go their way.

The hosts are just two points adrift of safety as things stand and they will look to pull off an unlikely win here.

Possible line-ups: 

Jordi Masip; Lucas Olaza, Jawad El Yamiq, Bruno Gonzalez, Saidy Janko; Joaquin Fernandez, Roque Mesa, Oscar Plano, Fede San Emeterio; Shon Weissman, Jota
