How Atlético Madrid should line up against Barcelona

Simeone has selection questions and a range of options as Atleti welcome Barça. The Wanda Metropolitano is expected to be packed to full capacity on Saturday when Atlético Madrid host Barcelona in LaLiga.
These two teams haven?t meaningfully convinced yet this season, but the sensaciones are undoubtedly better around Atlético following Tuesday?s 2-1 win at 10-man AC Milan.
Ronald Koeman?s men suffered a heavy Champions League defeat at Benfica on Wednesday, the latest blow to a club suffering an identity crisis on the pitch and a serious financial crisis off it.
Reports say Koeman won?t be sacked before Saturday?s trip to Madrid, though a two-game suspension means he won?t be on the touchline.

On the Atlético touchline, Diego Simeone is still fiddling around with the 11 and hasn?t found a settled lineup yet. But his aggression in turning to his bench this season has seen Atlético snatch results late, even though the champions aren?t playing as expected.
?The victory is much more important than the (way we played), because the Champions League group is difficult,? Simeone said Tuesday. ?Liverpool are very strong, Milan have played very well in their games. In the second half we brought together almost everyone, Griezmann, Lemar, Correa, De Paul, Suárez, João...they are all playing.
?We need to grow, improve, and find those who can bring steadiness to the game.? Will the Milan game prove transformational for an Atlético team that has struggled to get going this season" The answer might come as early as Saturday. Let?s see how Atleti might line up for this clash with Barcelona.

Goalkeeper: Jan Oblak
Though his save percentage is only 50 percent in LaLiga right now, Oblak will be the first name on the team sheet.
Central defense: Stefan Savi?, José Giménez, Felipe Monteiro
Savi? was suspended Tuesday but will re-enter the lineup in Felipe?s place. Giménez is an automatic starter when healthy and is playing at an elite level early this season.
Barcelona would be wise to target Hermoso if he starts because he?s not a strong one-on-one defender, so Felipe gets my nod as the third center-back due to his aerial strength and Koeman?s fondness for Luuk De Jong.

This feels like a tossup, though, as Hermoso excels in ball progression and Renan Lodi won some brownie points after a good second half (from an attacking standpoint) at San Siro.
Wing-backs: Marcos Llorente, Yannick Carrasco
Kieran Trippier exited Tuesday?s game before halftime with what I suspected was a muscle strain. He appears to be fine, but the England international hasn?t been at his best so far. Several opponents in a row have kept a close eye on his vertical passes into space for Llorente, reducing both players? effect...
