Possible XI: Adan; Vargas, Westermann, Pezzella, Montoya; N’Diaye, Musonda, Ceballos, Kadir; Castro, Molina. Key PlayersAtletico Madrid: Angel CorreaJAVIER SORIANO/Getty ImagesHe isn’t always guaranteed a start in Atletico’s bigger games, but after playing an hour for Argentina against Bolivia in midweek, Angel Correa will be targeting this clash to make an impact ahead of the Barcelona game in midweek. The 21-year-old has done well this season but will probably want to improve on his goals record of six, and this could be just the game to do that.
Improvement will be needed if they aren’t to slip straight back down to the Segunda, although whether that will come at the Vicente Calderon is debatable. Date: Saturday, April 2Time: 3 p. m.

Simeone has to decide who he can risk ahead of the midweek trip to the Camp Nou, with Savic and Lucas perhaps pressed into service despite not being fully fit. Elsewhere, Gabi will probably be left out with Barcelona in mind, while Augusto Fernandez could come into the side to replace compatriot Matias Kranevitter in midfield. Antoine Griezmann should start upfront, but it would be no surprise to see him withdrawn from the action early. Possible XI: Oblak; Gamez, Savic, Lucas, Filipe Luis; Fernandez, Saul, Koke, Correa; Griezmann, Vietto. Real BetisMerino will be desperate to turn things around after a miserable 1-0 home defeat to Malaga last time out, when the visitors struck with just eight minutes remaining to take the points.
The Betis boss is still without injured Italian defender Cristiano Piccini, while the Dutch duo Ricky van Wolfswinkel and Rafael van der Vaart again look like missing out. Club captain Jorge Molina could come in for the Brazil international Leandro Damiao, who only joined Betis in February and has been facing questions over his fitness.

First-choice centre-back pairing Diego Godin and Jose Gimenez are doubtful, Stefan Savic has only just returned to training, Lucas Hernandez has a back problem and even makeshift centre-back Saul Niguez has a knock.
