Jose Gimenez replaces Stefan Savic in Atletico Madrid's only change for their Champions League Group C match against Galatasaray.
Jose Gimenez has replaced Stefan Savic in Atletico Madrid's only change for tonight's Champions League Group C match against Galatasaray.
That switch in central defence is the only change made by Diego Simeone as his side look to secure progression to the last 16 with victory over the Turkish side.
Fernando Torres is again preferred to Jackson Martinez as top scorer Antoine Griezmann's partner in attack, with the Colombian absent from the matchday squad altogether.
For the visitors, who need a win tonight to keep their qualification hopes alive, there are four changes as Burak Yilmaz and Selcuk Inan are absent from the side due to suspension.
Former Reading midfielder Jem Karacan makes his Champions League debut in midfield, while ex-Arsenal man Lukas Podolski leads the line.
Atletico Madrid: Oblak; Gamez, Gimenez, Godin, Luis; Gabi, Tiago, Koke, Carrasco; Griezmann, Torres
Subs: Moya, Savic, Juanfran, Torres, Correa, Vietto, Saul Niguez
Galatasaray: Muslera; Sarioglu, Kaya, Chedjou, Balta, Denayer; Karacan, Bilal, Sneijder, Oztekin; Podolski
