The Rojiblancos head into the clash unbeaten in their last five La Liga outings, knowing that three points at Estadio Benito Villamarin will lift them up to second place.
Luciano Vietto returns to the squad following his recent layoff, but Torres - without a goal in two months - has been given the nod through the middle with further support being provided by Antoine Griezmann.
