Team News
Ibrahima Koné, Luis Suárez, Iddrisu Baba and César Montes are all on Almeria's injury list and the club has no suspension concerns.
Atletico, on the other hand, could be without Thomas Lemar, Marcos Paulo, César Azpilicueta and Álvaro Morata who are all currently injured, but the club has no suspension issues. 
"Against Almería, we had 70-something percent possession," Atletico manager Diego Simeone said ahead of their games against Inter Milan in midweek before facing Almeria.
"Against Las Palmas, 30. We think about playing one game or another depending on what happens.
"I'm not going to say it. We need to play with the intensity of cup matches. Inter has weapons to attack from any side. We'll play from where we can hurt them."
Atletico secured a 2-1 win over Almeria in their last meeting in La Liga and the game took place at the Estádio Cívitas Metropolitano on 10 December 2023.
As a result, the Mattress Makers are undefeated in their last five league matches against Rojiblancos having registered four wins and one draw.
