The big headliner in La Liga tonight is Atletico Madrid’s encounter against Sevilla as the two teams fight it out for the third podium spot in the league. There is €7 million at stake in this game, and Diego Simeone has selected their best lineup accordingly.

Mario Jimenez starts in the centre of the back-three, with Stefan Savic and Reinildo stationed on the right and left of the Uruguayan. This trident will guard Jan Oblak in goal, who has had a topsy-turvy campaign.

Atletico have released the XI as a 4-4-2 on paper, but is likely to look like a 3-5-2. Yannick Carrasco will start on the left side of the midfield, while Marcos Llorente assumes similar responsibility on the right.

The midfield features three central midfielders, with Geoffrey Kondogbia deployed as the anchor. Koke and Rodrigo de Paul will round off the centre of the park.

Meanwhile, Luis Suarez starts his last game at the Wanda Metropolitano, leaving the club as a legend. He is joined by none other than Antoine Griezmann, who got his third assist of the season against Elche last week.

Confirmed Atletico XI: Oblak; Savic, Gimenez, Reinildo; Llorente, de Paul, Kondogbia, Koke, Carrasco; Griezmann, Suarez

Atletico Madrid will be aiming to close the gap to third-placed Real Sociedad in the La Liga standings when they lock horns with Getafe on Saturday evening.

After a harrowing defeat to Real Madrid in the Copa del Rey quarter-finals, Los Rojiblancos returned to winning ways, securing a 1-0 victory over CA Osasuna last weekend.

And Diego Simeone & co. will be aiming to build on that result and cut down the gap to third-placed Sociedad, who are five points clear at this point.

Ahead of the game against Getafe, Simeone has released the Atletico Madrid squad list.

And deadline day signing Matt Doherty makes the cut. The Irish right-back joined from Tottenham Hotspur and could make his debut for the Colchoneros on Saturday evening against the Azulones.

Meanwhile, Stefan Savic is back in the squad after serving out his two-match ban for his sending-off in the game against Barcelona. Another boost for Atletico Madrid sees Marcos Llorente make a comeback after recovering from his injury.

Antoine Griezmann, Alvaro Morata, Angel Correa and January signing Memphis Depay make up the attacking options for Atletico Madrid, along with Yannick Carrasco.
