Joao Felix set for Atletico Madrid debut against Getafe

Atletico Madrid's record signing Joao Felix is set for his club debut against Getafe tonight.

The Portuguese international joined Diego Simeone's side this summer in a €126m deal from Benfica, breaking the club's previous record holder of Thomas Lemar, who joined for €63m in 2018.

Simeone confirmed his 20-man squad for the capital city derby at the Wanda Metropolitano, with Diego Costa and Angel Correa missing out through suspension and Nikola Kalinic sidelined through injury.
