We are now just a few hours away from the giant Champions League quarterfinal second leg at Vicente Calderón. Atlético Madrid and Barcelona battle in the Spanish capital for a place in the semifinals, and coach Diego Simeone has picked his squad for the game.

Of the 22 first team players on the roster, three are unavailable for Wednesday's encounter. Fernando Torres is suspended, Tiago has a leg injury and defender José Giménez did not recover in time from his hamstring injury. Óliver Torres, doubtful for the game with a groin injury, was medically cleared and is available. Óliver is the only Colchonero in danger of missing a potential semifinal first leg if booked at the Calderón.

These are the nineteen players called up by Cholo for the match:

Goalkeepers: 1. Miguel Moyá, 13. Jan Oblak

Defenders: 2. Diego Godín, 3. Filipe Luís, 15. Stefan Savic, 18. Jesús Gámez, 19. Lucas Hernández, 20. Juanfran

Midfielders: 6. Koke, 8. Matías Kranevitter, 10. Óliver Torres, 12. Augusto Fernández, 14. Gabi Fernández, 17. Saúl Ñíguez, 21. Yannick Carrasco, 22. Thomas Partey

Forwards: 7. Antoine Griezmann, 16. Ángel Correa, 23. Luciano Vietto

Projected Starting Lineup (4-1-4-1):

Oblak; Juanfran, Godín, Lucas, Luís; Augusto; Saúl, Gabi, Koke, Carrasco; Griezmann
