Team news

Timo Werner has been the star for Leipzig in this competition, but he is now a Chelsea player so won't be available for this mini-tournament. Marcel Halstenberg missed a recent friendly draw with Wolfsburg with a back injury but is back in the squad and should start.

Atletico confirmed on Monday that Angel Correa and Sime Vrsaljko were the individuals to test positive for coronavirus at the weekend and will take no part in this encounter as they are self-isolating.

Apart from those two, Diego Simeone has a full squad to choose from although Thomas Partey has a slight calf strain but is expected to start.
