For the first La Liga game of 2021 at Alaves tomorrow, Atletico Madrid will play without defensive duo Kieran Trippier and Stefan Savic.
’s table-toppers go to the Basque Country trying to edge back before Real Madrid in the La Liga title race.
Though, the Argentinian boss will miss two of his first-choice back four, with Savic and Trippier both suspended.
Savic drops out after getting his fifth league booking of 2020/21 in the 1-0 victory over Getafe in their final game of 2020.
Trippier has been deleted after FIFA’s decision to suspend his ban due to betting offenses, commanded by the English FA, was received too late to be included.
Mexican international, Hector Herrera is also out of game, with an injury, but important pair Saul Niguez and Luis Suarez are fit to be in tour with the team.
