the Atlético de Madrid visit this Tuesday to Milan at San Siro, in the match corresponding to the second day of the group stage of the Champions League. The main novelty in Simeone’s official eleven is the presence of Angel Correa. The entrance of the Argentine sends Joao Félix and Antoine Griezmann to the bench. In addition, it highlights the return of Koke after several injured games.

Behind the draw against Porto on matchday one In the Wanda Metropolitano, the rojiblanco team faces this duel almost like a final. They need to add all three points so as not to complicate their chances of being in the next round. Ahead they will have a Milan who comes from losing on his return to the Champions League against Liverpool.
It will not be an easy game for Cholo Simeone’s students. And what is more, Atlético does not arrive at its best at this meeting. They come from suffering the first defeat of the season in the league last weekend against Alavés. They need to recover from the crash as soon as possible and hope to start doing so at the San Siro.
The technician has recovered Lemar, Koke and Joao Félix for this encounter. The most striking lap is that of the Frenchman, since before the injury he was being one of the pillars of this team. Who will not be is Stefan Savic, who will serve the second of his four games of suspension.
