Atletico are light at both ends of the pitch for this final game of the season, due to defensive injuries and attacking suspensions.

Up front, Angel Correa could partner the departing Antoine Griezmann, with Diego Costa and Alvaro Morata suspended and Nikola Kalinic unwell. Saul Niguez is also banned. Griezmann may not be the only player featuring for Atletico for the last time, with an exodus of players expected this summer.

Antoine Griezmann – Set for his final Atletico Madrid match, with the French striker going into it on the back of 21 goals and ten assists this season.
Diego Godin – Another long-serving Atletico servant set to depart – the defender has been a mainstay of their excellent defensive record.

LEV vs ATLETI Betting Tips
Atletico Madrid have won all three matches they have played against Levante since the latter’s return to La Liga – and have not conceded in any of those matches.
Antoine Griezmann’s penalty was enough to earn victory last time they met and the Frenchman will lead the line in his final Atletico appearance too.
Diego Godin is another set to depart Atletico, but he is available at the back in amongst a string of defensive injuries to lead that ever-impressive backline.
Atletico’s recent form has dropped off, with a defeat and a draw in their last two matches, while Levante have finished the season strongly to pull away from relegation danger.
But, having achieved that objective, the pressure is off Levante now and that may be reflected on the pitch – the string of injuries they suffered last weekend further hindering them.
Atletico Madrid are favourites to win with good reason – with several players keen to sign off on a high, they can secure an away win.
