📰 Team News: Atlético Madrid
The Atlético Madrid manager Diego Simeone has no fitness concerns whatsoever before this match owing to a fully healthy group to choose from.
We are thinking that Atleti will probably go for a 5-3-2 formation this time, utilising Ivo Grbic, Jose Gimenez, Axel Witsel, Mario Hermoso, Nahuel Molina, Saul Niguez, Rodrigo De Paul, Koke, Yannick Carrasco, Alvaro Morata and Antoine Griezmann.
📰 Team News: Osasuna
Osasuna manager Jagoba Arrasate has not got a full squad to pick from. Darko Brasanac (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) and Nacho Vidal (Muscular problems) miss out here.
We believe Los Rojillos seem likely to begin the game with a 4-3-3 formation, choosing Sergio Herrera, Ruben Pena, Aridane Hernandez, David Garcia, Manuel Sanchez, Jon Moncayola, Lucas Torro, Aimar Oroz, Ezequiel Avila, Ante Budimir and Ruben Garcia.
It seems to us that Osasuna will need to play some great football to break down a Atlético Madrid team who certainly have the ability to control this match, should everything go as we’re expecting.
We predict a very comprehensive 3-0 margin for Atlético Madrid when all is said and done.
