La Liga Champions Atletico Madrid will be looking to bounce back from their 4-1 loss to Real Madrid in the Champions League final when both sides meet again in the Spanish Super Cup on Tuesday.

Argentina winger Angel Di Maria is expected to feature against Diego Simeone’s men, despite being the source of much transfer speculation this summer.

Atletico lost the Supercopa last term to Barcelona and Gabi’s team-mates are keen to make amends this time out.

The likes of Diego Costa, Thibaut Courtois and Filipe Luis have bid farewell to the club, with Antoine Griezmann and Mario Mandzukic among those brought in.

The return leg of the Spanish Super Cup is at the Vicente Calderon on Friday, three days before Atletico start the defence of their title at Rayo Vallecano.
