Alvaro Gonzalez should return at centre-back for league action, with Daniele Bonera dropping to the bench.
Roberto Soriano will continue in midfield owing to the injury absence of Samu Castillejo.
No further changes should be made, with Javi Calleja’s side doing very well of late in La Liga.
Simon Kjaer misses out due to injury for the visitors, with Johannes Geis forced to play as a make-shift centre-back once again.
Nolito should be preferred to Joaquin Correa on the left, with Jesus Navas battling with Pablo Sarabia on the opposite flank.
Guido Pizarro and Steven N’Zonzi should start at the base of midfield, but Franco Vazquez did do well off the bench against Liverpool midweek.
