Lucas Hernández has been ruled out of Atlético Madrid's Saturday lunchtime game against Eibar at the last minute. Lucas was taken to hospital after experiencing severe stomach pains and underwent tests, which fortunately ruled out appendicitis as the cause.

As a result, Simeon will call upon Francisco Javier Montero from the Atlético B Team, as well as the trusted pairing of Godín, who was going to be rested for Los Rojiblancos' Champions League game against Monaco, and his compatriot José María Giménez.
