Champions League Falcao returns to Madrid
Diego Costa has been added to Atletico Madrid‘s absentees list, as the Rojiblancos are set to host Monaco at Estadio Wanda Metropolitano.
As Radamel Falcao returns to Madrid as an opponent, Diego Simeone can’t count on the injured Diego Godin, Jose Maria Gimenez and Juanfran.
Jan Oblak, Santiago Arias, Lucas Hernandez, Stefan Savic and Filipe Luis will look to secure Atleti‘s defence, while Angel Correa, Rodrigo Hernandez, Thomas Partey and Vitolo are expected to form the midfield.
Nikola Kalinic and Antoine Griezmann will aim to unlock Monaco‘s defence and clinch the three points that will see their team qualifying to the knock out stages.
Atletico Madrid’s probable XI: Oblak; Arias, Lucas Hernandez, Savic, Filipe Luis; Correa, Rodrigo, Thomas, Vitolo; Kalinic and Griezmann.
Bench: Adan, Saul, Koke, Lemar, Toni Moya, Joaquin, Gelson Martinez and Borja Garces.
Monaco’s probable XI: Benaglio; Chadli, Raggi, Jemerson, B. Badiashile, Henrichs; Tielemans, Golovin, Ait-Bennaser; Sylla and Falcao.
Bench: Badiashile, Biancone, Massengo, Diop, Gouano, Silva, Thuram and Grandsir.
