Same again Simeone for Valladolid

Diego Simeone has named the same Atletico Madrid squad as against Rayo Vallecano last week for Sunday’s game with Real Valladolid.

The Argentine decided to put out a reserve team in Thursday’s 3-0 Europa League victory over Hapoel Tel-Aviv, but has resisted the temptation for change after seeing his team almost throw away a four-goal lead at the Vicente Calderon against neighbours Rayo.

It means there is still no place for Jorge Pulido, Joel Robles, Silvio Pereira and Domingo Cisma for technical reasons.

Meanwhile, Tunisian full-back Kader Ouslati has returned to training after fracturing a collarbone that was operated on at the end of August, and could be ready to stake a claim in the coming weeks.

The full squad is:

Asenjo, Courtois; Godin, Filipe Luis, Cata Diaz, Juanfran, Miranda; Mario Suarez, Tiago, Koke, Raul Garcia, Arda Turan, Cristian Rodriguez, Gabi, Emre; Adrian, Falcao and Diego Costa.
