Simeone includes Arias in Atlético squad for the derby

The Atlético coach has named a 19-man squad for tonight's Madrid derby at the Bernabéu. Savic and Gelson Martins, with physical problems have been left out.

Santiago Arias.

Diego Pablo Simeone has named the 19 players who form part of his squad list for tonight's game against Real Madrid after veering from his usual plans by calling his players to meet on the same day as the game. Right-back Santiago Arias has been included after being given the medical all-clear this morning. He has now recovered from the fractured rib he suffered while on international duty with Colombia. 

Vitolo could also be handed a run-out at the Bernabéu after shaking off a sprained knee while B team striker Borja Garcés makes the list but could be dropped later to round down the squad to 18.

Atlético squad:

Oblak, Adán, Arias, Juanfran, Giménez, Godín, Lucas, Filipe, Rodrigo, Thomas, Saúl, Koke, Vitolo, Lemar, Correa, Griezmann, Diego Costa, Borja Garcés and Kalinic.
