Atletico Madrid will host Valencia at the Vicente Calderon as Diego Simeone’s men look to bounce back from recent their woes in La Liga.
In their last two games in La Liga, Atletico failed to register a single win, losing 2-1 against Barcelona at home before drawing 1-1 with Deportivo.
The game against Deportivo was marred by an injury to striker Fernando Torres. Fortunately, the injury was not so serious and the forward has been released from the hospital on Thursday.
Valencia, who had beaten Real Madrid two weeks ago, has lost a game and won one since. In their last game, they won against Leganes thanks to a goal from Eliaquim Mangala.

Midfielder Saul Niguez is back from suspension and the Spaniard is likely to contribute in this game from the start. He should play in the right side of four-man midfield, as he is usually deployed there by his manager Diego Simeone.
