La Liga | Sat, 16 Apr 05, 20:00 | Vicente Calderon
This game has huge Champions League implications with Atleti needing the three points to realistically keep alive their hopes for Europe's premier competition.
Atletico coach Cesar Ferrando will have to cope without playmaker Ariel Ibagaza, who is suspended, and midfielder Alvaro Novo who is injured. However Ferrando will be able to count on defender Luis Perea and midfielder Carlos Aguilera, who have both returned to full fitness after recovering from knocks.
In the absence of Ibagaza, Ferrando will probably start with striker Salva Ballesta up front alongside leading scorer Torres, in a two-man attack.
