Alexander Callens, Yangel Herrera, Yan Couto, and Ibrahima Kebe remain out with injuries, leaving Girona without four first-team players. After the 3-2 defeat at Girona, head coach Michel has to make decisions because he brought in three players at the half in the five-goal thriller last time.
Arnau Martinez and Aleix Garcia should keep their starting positions because the players who started the game might get a chance to get back on their feet. Angel Correa and Nahuel Molina will both play again for Atletico after serving suspensions, but Reinildo, Rodrigo De Paul, and Sergio Reguilon are still out with injuries.
Morata could now play in a front two against Memphis, putting Antoine Griezmann in a deeper position, as he scored twice off the bench against Sevilla. However, Simeone won’t be able to make a lot of changes to the team that started the previous game, so Yannick Carrasco and Axel Witsel should keep their starting positions.
