It might be too early to rule out Atletico Madrid given the unpredictability of the game but, with seven first-team players out injured, it will be a tough task for Diego Simeone and his men.
The Reds travel to Madrid next week for their round of 16 first-leg tie on Tuesday, February 12 just shortly after the trip to Norwich City on Saturday.
The Spanish side is struggling with injuries with the following players major doubts or completely ruled out.
Atleti’s injury list
- Diego Costa
- Joao Felix
- Alvaro Morata
- Hector Herrera
- Santiago Arias
- Jose Gimenez
- Kieran Trippier (certain to miss out)
It has not been a good season for the Rojiblancos as they sit a hefty 13 points off the La Liga summit.
