CL: Atletico Madrid without injured trio for Malmo test

Madrid: Atletico Madrid will have to do without veteran midfielders Gabi and Tiago and left-back Cristian Ansaldi due to muscle injuries for the visit of Swedish champions Malmo on Wednesday.


Tiago had to replaced after scoring the opening goal in Sunday's 2-0 win over Espanyol due to a quadriceps strain, whilst Ansaldi and Gabi have picked up hamstring injuries.

Spanish midfield duo Saul Niguez and Mario Suarez look set to come into the side with Brazilian Guilherme Siqueira reclaiming his place at left-back as last season's beaten finalists look to take a step towards the last 16.

All four sides in Group A are locked on three points from two games with Olympiakos also hosting two-time European champions Juventus on Wednesday.
