Atletico Madrid pair Saul Niguez and Thomas Partey suspended for Granada clash

Atletico Madrid will be without midfield pair Saul Niguez and Thomas Partey for their La Liga trip to Granada after the international break.

Diego Simeone' side head to Andalucia, on the back of an eight game unbeaten run in league action, compared to Diego Martinez's side, who have lost their last three games.

Niguez and Partey both picked up their fifth league booking of the season in last weekend's 3-1 win at home to Espanyol, however they will be back for the crunch tie at home to league leaders Barcelona on December 1.

However, Simeone will be mindful that fellow midfielders Angel Correa and Marcos Llorente are up to four yellow cards in La Liga this season, and a booking at the Estadio Nuevo los Carmenes would rule them out of the Barcelona game.
