Atlético counts the hours for the return of LaLiga. The rojiblanco team wants to refloat its situation after the bad results obtained prior to the break and receives Osasuna at the Wanda Metropolitano, one of the most dangerous visitors of the course. Simeone has his best news in the form of a return, since he will be able to count on Lemar and Llorente fully recovered and its two midfielders have been working with the group for more than a week and are aiming for eleven.

In the negative section, João Félix joined Trippier and Saponjic in the rojiblanca infirmary after suffering a concussion in training Wednesday. The great doubt for Simeone is in Renan Lodi, who after going to the Majadahonda training facilities went home when he found himself unwell. The coaching staff will wait until tomorrow to know the availability of the Brazilian full-back, that although he was left out of the call, since he will not concentrate today with his teammates, he would be included tomorrow if he is in full condition.

Simeone has multiple variants in his scheme, where Llorente and Lemar would return to balance in the middle with Koke. El Cholo could regain a defense of four, with Vrsaljko as a right-back filling Trippier’s vacancy. The Argentine coach must decide between giving rest to players like Suárez, Giménez and De Paul, the last to join training after their commitments in South America and with Milan just around the corner or bet on everything without looking at the crucial Champions League match. Griezmann looks for a companion upstairs, where Carrasco could advance his position leaving Suárez starting on the bench. The Frenchman will finally be able to participate in the match against Milan after UEFA reduced his penalty from two to one match.

Simeone’s full roster for the match is made up of 19 footballers: Oblak, Lecomte, Giménez, Savic, Felipe, Hermoso, Vrsaljko, Kondogbia, De Paul, Koke, Llorente, Herrera, Lemar, Carlos Martín, Carrasco, Griezmann, Correa, Suárez and Cunha.
