Atletico Madrid

Atletico Madrid will be without defender Sime Vrsaljko and midfielder Thomas Lemar for their Champions League second leg tie against Manchester United on Tuesday evening. 

The duo was not named among the 23-man traveling party on Monday morning as they are still recovering from thigh injuries.

Captain and influential midfielder Koke, who missed out on the reverse fixture in the Spanish capital, is however back and traveled with the rest of the team.

Koke played for 45 minutes of Saturday’s 2-1 win over Cadiz, and his availability is good news to coach Diego Simeone.

Just like Koke, defender Stefan Savic, who had been an injury doubt for the tie, played the full game at the Wanda Metropolitano and is expected to start at Old Trafford.

Full squad

Goalkeepers: Oblak, Lecomte, Gomez.

Defenders: Gimenez, Lodi, Savic, Felipe, Hermoso, Reinildo, Fran Gonzalez, Ibra.

Midfielders: Kondogbia, De Paul, Koke, Llorente, Herrera, Serrano, Martin, Moreno.

Forwards: Felix, Griezmann, Suarez, Correa.
