Diego Simeone's Atlético de Madrid returns to Wanda Metropolitano after the break due to the new coronavirus pandemic. And, after his start with a win against Osasuna, he will seek a victory against Valladolid that will allow him to equal Sevilla in third place in the Spanish League.
With Angel Correa among the substitutes, Atleti will complete the day of this Saturday on the 30th of the tournament that has Barcelona as the only leader. The game will begin at 5pm and will be televised on ESPN 2.
The "Colchonero" team left behind this week a series of three consecutive draws and managed a win in Pamplona, over Osasuna 5-0, while Valladolid comes from a goalless draw with Celta de Vigo and needs to score to get out of the Leaderboard background.
These are the ones chosen by @Simeone to start the #AtletiRealValladolid! 👇
