Diego Simeone has already selected his team to face Elche on Sunday.
Atletico Madrid got off on the right foot in their bid to defend last season’s La Liga title, beating Celta Vigo 2-1 in what was a physical battle.
But ahead of their second outing, a clash with Elche at Wanda Metropolitano, Atleti’s first home game in front of fans for more than a year, Simeone is set to change things up.
There is also a full debut in the offing for Rodrigo de Paul, who is expected to come into the Rojiblancos midfield.
Of course, the lineup is in no way official just yet with the game not until Sunday, but it is likely to be pretty accurate.
