Tiago Mendes is a late withdrawal from Atletico Madrid’s squad to play Zenit St Petersburg, handing a first call-up for Josuha Guilavogui.

The Portuguese midfielder was originally listed in the squad selected to prepare for Wednesday’s Champions League opener at home to the Russians.

However, the 32-year-old has dropped out on Wednesday, suffering with discomfort and his place in the 18-man squad has been taken by Frenchman Guilavogui.

The youngster was a late arrival at Atleti in the summer transfer window and this marks his first call-up to a squad under Diego Simeone.
