Team News: Atlético Madrid
Almost everyone can be considered, as there’s just the lone fitness concern for the Atlético Madrid gaffer Diego Simeone to be concerned with from a near full-strength set of players. José Giménez (Corona virus) won’t play.
Team News: Granada
Owing to an otherwise full-strength group of players, there’s only a single fitness worry for the Granada boss Diego Martínez to contend with. Dimitri Foulquier (Muscle Injury) won’t be playing here.
We’ve got the feeling that Atlético Madrid can be able to score a couple when they line up against Granada, who may well find it hard scoring a goal of their own.
Our tip is for a controlled 2-0 winning score for Atlético Madrid by the time that the referee blows the final whistle.
