The Montenegrin international will be absent from Diego Simeone’s travelling squad after he picked up his fifth La Liga booking of 2020/21 in this weekend’s 2-1 win over Osasuna.
Savic was one of a number of players walking a suspension tightrope for Los Rojiblancos ahead of the end of season and he will be disappointed to be ruled out for arguing with referee Juan Martinez Munuera.
The 30-year-old has been a key figure in Atletico’s title push this season with 33 league starts from 37 games and his absence will be a blow for Simeone as per reports from Marca.
Uruguayan star Jose Gimenez is set to come in as a direct replacement with Simeone likely to make that his only change to the starting line up.
A last day win would see them crowned as champions for the first time since 2013.
