Austria Wien vs Atletico Madrid
Atletico Madrid will be confident of getting back to winning ways against Austria Vienna in the Champions League after losing their first game of the season at the weekend.
Diego Simeone's side went down 1-0 at Espanyol to lose their 100% record in La Liga, passing up the opportunity to overtake Barcelona at the summit.
They now travel to Austria's capital to face the minnows of Group G and will be able to start in-form frontman Diego Costa, who missed the last European game at Porto through suspension.
Coach Simeone may be able to welcome back defender Miranda, who was unavailable for the game at Espanyol.
Hosts Vienna impressively picked up a point at Zenit St Petersburg last time out but will be without Alexander Gorgon, who had knee surgery recently and could be out for the rest of the season.
Possible starting lineups
Vienna: Lindner; Dilaver, Rogulj, Ortlechner, Suttner; Simkovic, Holland, Mader; Spiridonovic, Hosiner, Jun
Atletico: Courtois; Juanfran, Miranda, Godin, Luis; Koke, Tiago, Gabi, Turan; Villa, Costa
