The La Liga outfit were surprisingly beaten 2-0 by Rubin last week, meaning that Diego Simeone's side need to produce a strong turnaround in order to book their spot in the latter stages of the tournament.
Rubin enter the match having won just one of their last five matches in all competitions, with that run of form leaving them in seventh position in their domestic table, some 12 points behind leaders CSKA Moscow.
Atletico are enjoying a successful La Liga season, meanwhile, currently occupying second position, four points ahead of third-placed Real Madrid. They have won all 12 of their home league matches this season, but have been less successful on the road, suffering five defeats from 12 games.
Atletico could recall Diego Costa at the expense of Radamel Falcao, who has not long been back from injury. Meanwhile, Cata Diaz should continue in defence at the expense of Miranda, who is struggling with a slight muscular complaint.
Rubin: Ryzhikov, Ansaldi, Navas, Marcano, Sharonov; Orbaiz, Karadeniz, Natcho, Kislyak; Eremenko, Rondon
Atletico: Asenjo; Juanfran, Diaz, Godin, Luis; Tiago, Suarez, Turan, Rodriguez; Costa, Adrian
Sports Mole says: 2-2
