@Celta Next Games Levante

Diego Simeone Coaches Carlo Ancelotti

Aranzubía no more. Thibaut Courtois missed the 2nd leg of the Copa del Rey Semifinals but will be playing against Real Madrid this afternoon. Carlo Ancelotti started Carvajal and Marcelo against Schalke and could give Coentrao and Arbeloa a starting chance to improve his defense. It will be key to contain Arda Turan, so Arbeloa might definitely be a better choice for Ancelotti in that right wing. If Coentrao does start as a left back expect Real Madrid to play a bit more defensively and hope for a counterattack. Atlético need a win after all.

So here's how everything would look on the pitch:

Careful with Atleti's set pieces. We all know what Raúl García is capable of.
