Diego Simeone has left Oliver Torres and new signing Domingo Cisma at home in naming a 20-man squad to face Chelsea in the UEFA Super Cup.
For Friday’s meeting in Monaco between last season’s Europa League and Champions League winners, the Argentine tactician has called up cantero Javier Manquillo to make up the defensive numbers.
Full-back Cisma, who signed for the team just yesterday, has not been included and neither has Manquillo’s youth teammate Oliver.
Goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois is in line to face the team that currently holds his ownership.
