However, this being the UEFA Champions League, nothing can be said for sure and the team that put in a solid all-round performance can expect to win this matchup.
Atletico Madrid vs AC Milan Match Prediction: Team News, Probable XI
For Atletico Madrid, Gabriel Paulista, Lato Toni, Denis Cheryshev and Maxi Gomez are all unavailable due to injury concerns and will miss out on the matchup against AC Milan. Samu Castillejo and Junior Messias are both suspended and will be unavailable for selection in the squad.
Atletico Madrid (Probable XI): Jan Oblak, Mario Hermoso, Jose Gimenez, Felipe, Kieran Trippier, Yannick Carrasco, Koke, Rodrigo De Paul, Thomas Lemar, Griezmann, Luis Suarez.
AC Milan (Probable XI): Tatarusanu, Calabria, Kjaer, Tomori, Hernandez, Tonali, Kessie, Saelemaekers, Diaz, Leao, Ibrahimovic.
Key Players and Matchups
The return of Antoine Griezmann to Atletico Madrid has revived the squad and his ability to link with Luis Suarez gives Diego Simeone’s side the attacking flair that they lacked in the past. In the UEFA Champions League 2021/22, Griezmann has been proficient for Atletico Madrid, and in the only match that he’s played so far, he’s scored 3 goals. This proficiency in front of the goal is something that Atletico Madrid will expect from him in the matchup against AC Milan as they go head-to-head on November 24, 2021.
Given the head-to-head stats and the squad lineups that are expected from both sides, there is a high probability that the teams share the spoils and walk away with one point each.
