Atlético Madrid boss Diego Simeone announced on Tuesday the 19-man squad that traveled to Barcelona for the La Liga match against the Catalan giants on Wednesday night:

Goalkeepers: 13. Jan Oblak, 25. André Moreira

Defenders: 2. Diego Godín, 3. Filipe Luís, 15. Stefan Savic, 19. Lucas Hernández, 20. Juanfran, 24. José Giménez

Midfielders: 6. Koke, 8. Saúl Ñíguez, 10. Yannick Carrasco, 12. Augusto Fernández, 14. Gabi, 22. Thomas Partey, 23. Nico Gaitán

Forwards: 7. Antoine Griezmann, 9. Fernando Torres, 11. Ángel Correa, 21. Kevin Gameiro

Absolutely no surprises from the Argentine manager. All of the best players are in the squad, nobody is suspended and no key squad member is injured or suspended. 'Cholo' Simeone took 19 players with him to the Catalan capital, and will have to cut one of them before announcing the eighteen that will be in uniform for the match.

Projected starting lineup (4-1-4-1, right to left):

Oblak; Juanfran, Giménez, Godín, Luís; Augusto; Griezmann, Koke, Saúl, Carrasco; Gameiro

This is a team with an incredible defense, a great midfield and an in-form attack. It's one of the strongest squads in Europe and it can challenge anyone, including Barça. This will be fun, but also very tough.
