Diego Simeone welcomes back Juanfran Torres and Filipe Luis from injury for Atletico Madrid, whilst Marcelo Bielsa sticks with the same XI.
In the first meeting between these two sides since they contested the 2012 Europa League Final, Simeone can welcome back both full-backs to the Atleti first team.
Cata Diaz and Silvio drop to the bench as a result, whilst Mario Suarez comes in for Tiago Mendes in midfield and Koke deputises for Adrian Lopez on the wing.
For Athletic, they are still without the excluded Fernando Llorente and Javi Martinez, as Bielsa names the same starting XI that defeated HJK Helsinki 6-0 in the Europa League last week.
Atletico Madrid: Courtois; Juanfran, Miranda, Godin, Filipe Luis; Mario, Gabi; Arda Turan, Rodriguez, Koke; Falcao
Athletic Bilbao: Iraizoz; Iraola, Gurpegui, San Jose, I.Perez; Iturraspe; Susaeta, De Marcos, Herrera, I. Lopez; Aduriz
