Diego Costa has returned to the Atletico Madrid XI as they prepare to face Milan this evening.

The Rojiblancos host the Italian giants in the Champions League Last 16 tonight, holding a 1-0 aggregate lead from the first leg.

And they do so with the Spain international, who returns to the team after missing Sunday’s win over Celta Vigo through suspension.

Raul Garcia plays just off the top scorer, with Gabi, Arda Turan, Koke and Mario Suarez making up a midfield four.

Diego Godin also comes into the side after serving a suspension at the weekend.

For the away side meanwhile, Mario Balotelli starts on his own up front, with former Real Madrid men Kaka and Michael Essien in midfield.

Atletico Madrid: Courtois; Juanfran, Miranda, Godin, Filipe; Mario Suarez, Koke, Arda Turan, Gabi; Raul Garcia; Diego Costa

Milan: Abbiati; Abate, Bonera, Rami, Emanuelson; Essien, De Jong; Poli, Kaka, Taarabt; Balotelli
