Atletico Madrid’s squad for the current season is brimming with talent and experience. Managed by the renowned Diego Simeone, the team boasts an exciting lineup. From the commanding presence of goalkeeper Jan Oblak to a lot of experience in defense with Hermoso, Witsel, Gimenez and Savic. We can also talk about the creative prowess of midfielders like Koke, Llorente, Salu and Rodrigo De Paul. Thanks to these players, Atletico Madrid showcases a well-balanced roster. The addition of César Azpilicueta, Çağlar Söyüncü, and other talents brings depth to their defensive options. With Antoine Griezmann, Alvaro Morata and Memphis Depay leading the attack, this squad is geared up for a competitive season in La Liga.

Possible Starting 11

Oblak is #1 for Simeone’s team and has been for some time. In the best Atletico has some options, the trio with the most minutes seems to be: Azpi, former CDM Witsel and Hermoso. The two wingbacks are Molina and Lino, however Reinildo was injured, so he can make a comeback soon.

In the midfield we’ve went with Llorente, De Paul and Saul Niguez, but we cannot forget the veteran captain, Koke. In attack, we can expect Griezmann and Alvaro Morata to start most matches.
