Simeone insists with Vitolo, Llorente and Herrera in the eleven for Granada

Koke Resurrection will repeat in the center of the field, while Renan Lodi will return to the left side on the defensive line.


Diego Simeone, coach of Atlético de Madrid, had all his international players on Thursday and finished his idea of eleven for the visit to Granada, with Víctor Machín, 'Vitolo', Marcos Llorente and Héctor Herrera, as he had already rehearsed in two sessions throughout this week

Without Saúl Ñíguez or Thomas Partey, sanctioned for a cycle of five yellow cards; Without Diego Costa, operated by a cervical disc herniation, and without recovering even Stefan Savic, who relapsed on Tuesday of his muscular injury, nor José María Giménez, were for the sixth meeting, Thursday's test confirms the planned alignment, in the absence of the Friday session, the last one before the trip to Granada.

In it Vitolo will remain in the attack, brilliant in his return to the eleven of the last day against Espanyol, and Álvaro Morata, scorer in each of his last six games with Atlético, apart from Angel Correa, who will play on the right, while in the midfield there will be two novelties for the casualties of Saul and Thomas.

The Mexican Héctor Herrera, holder for the second consecutive clash, will enter his best series to date in Atlético, and Marcos Llorente, who returns to eleven three games later. He does not start from 1-1 with Alavés in Mendizorroza, in which he was substituted for the break. It is one of his only two duels holder.

Karaoke Resurrection will repeat in the center of the field, while Renan Lodi will return to the left side on the defensive line, with Felipe Monteiro and Mario Hermoso as central, with Kieran Trippier on the right wing and with Jan Oblak in the goal.

Simeone has 16 players from the first team to assemble the call. To the eleven foreseeable headlines, he adds Joao Felix, already recovered from a sprain that has taken him away from the last six crashes and that his replacement in Granada points out; Thomas Lemar, who is an eleven alternative on the right wing; Antonio Adam, Santiago Arias and Ivan Saponjic, although the latter does not usually appear in the citations. You must call at least two youth from the subsidiary.
