Tiago returns after four months out

Tiago, one of three of the Rojiblancos' long-term casualties, hasn't seen a single of minute of first team action since December, when he started the Week 15 game against Villarreal at El Madrigal in which he lasted just 30 minutes due to pains in his knee.

Atlético's casualty room clearing out

With Tiago available once again, it leaves just Augusto and Vrsaljko in the casualty room. The Croatian is recovering from a partial ACL tear in his left knee which he suffered in the Sevilla game on 19 March. Augusto Fernández is now working out in the fresh air and progressing well from the ACL tear he sustained against Deportivo back in September. It remains to be seen whether Simeone will give the Argentinean a few minutes' playing time before the season ends.

Atlético squad:

Oblak, Moreira, Godín, Filipe, Savic, Juanfran, Lucas, Giménez, Saúl, Carrasco, Tiago, Cerci, Thomas, Gaitán, Keidi, Griezmann, Fernando Torres and Correa.
