Atlético Madrid will have three absences for this game: Angel Correa, Diego Costa and Sime Vrsaljko. Correa and Costa have pending bans from last season, but in Costa's case, he is also carrying an injury that might see him miss all of this month's games. The rest of Atlético's star-studded cast is fit to play, including new signings Marcos Llorente, Joao Félix, Renan Lodi, Kieran Trippier and Mario Hermoso, to name some of them.
Getafe's coach, José Bordalás, will see his side fight for the first three points without three players as well. Amath Ndiayé and Vitorino Antunes have been ruled out for this game, while there is a glimmer of hope in Francisco Portillo's case, as he will be assessed before the match to determine his availability. Los Azulones added Marc Cucurella on loan from Barcelona, who could represent a fine addition for the team's midfield.
