Diego Costa to lead the line for Atletico Madrid…
Here’s how we reckon Diego Siemone’s side will line up tonight against Chelsea in the Champions League…
GK) Thibaut Courtois
The young Belgian has been given the all clear by UEFA to start against his parent club, and should do just that tonight.
The 29-year-old Spaniard is an ever present in Atletico’s side, while youngster Javier Manquilo will provide adequate backup from the bench.
Brazilian defender Miranda is very comfortable on the ball, and also provides a dangerous aerial option during attacking set-pieces.
DC) Diego Godin
Godin is a superb no-nonsense defender, and will likely be charged with marking either Samuel Eto’o, Fernando Torres or Demba Ba, depending on who Mourinho selects for Chelsea.
DL) Filipe Luis
The Brazilian is more attacking than Juanfran on the other flank, and has a brilliant left foot with which he can provide dangerous crosses.
