The new campaign is still a few weeks away, so it will still be more about fitness and looking at personnel than the result at this point, but both Diego Simeone and counterpart Sergio Egea will be hoping to take the positives from the 90 minutes regardless. Date: Tuesday, July 28Time: 7 p. m. BST (2 p. ET)Venue: Estadio Carlos Tartiere, Oviedo, Spain TV Info: Canal+ Liga (ESP)Live Stream: TBCThe TeamsWith Diego Simeone in place, Atletico Madrid have a distinct style and setup about the team.
PIERRE-PHILIPPE MARCOU/Getty ImagesThere will be plenty of interest in the likes of Oliver Torres, impressive on loan at Porto last season, while new defensive signing Stefan Savic has a battle on his hands to win a spot in the centre of defence ahead of Jose Gimenez, who has become Diego Godin's partner for club and country. Atletico's only friendly so far this summer finished in a 2-0 win at Numancia, and despite much talk of Simeone switching to a 4-3-3 for the upcoming campaign, it was the usual 4-4-2 that began that match. The first game of the summer means little—result, performance or formation—but it was interesting to see the initial selections nonetheless. Real Madrid from the last time the Asturias side were in the top flight in 2001.
I think the really important thing this year is the sense of everyone being involved, and the momentum building. An important factor in this has been the fact that the Carsa Group, Carlos Slim's company, has really led it this time. Over the last 18 months or so their involvement has been really big. The long-term future, if the Carsa Group gets properly involved, is very bright indeed. There's investment behind it, but the club is becoming professionalized, and better organised, and that's brought with it a real sense of momentum. Team NewsAs expected, Simeone changed his entire team around during the game against Numancia, using 24 players during the course of the 90 minutes, including a double change at centre-back after around only 25 minutes—not much can be taken from the fixture in terms of preference or level of fitness of the players. Since that match, Jackson Martinez has been officially presented by the club so could be in line to make his debut, while it might be expected that some of those who played only the second half last time out—such as Raul Garcia, Gabi, Jesus Gamez—might feature from the start this time.
Their last triumph in Copa del Rey came way back in 2013. Possible Lineups Angel Montoro and Javi Mier will be unavailable for Real Oviedo due to fitness and injury issues. As for Atletico Madrid, rotations are a very possible scenario with a view to maintain their form in La Liga. Real Oviedo possible line-up: Nadal, Ahijado, Luengo, Calvo, Bretones, Prendes, Suarez, Rozada, Koindredi, Sanchez, Baston Atletico Madrid possible line-up: Oblak, Gimenez, Savic, Hermoso, Llorente, Koke, Barrios, Koke, Reguilon, Lemar, Morata Form Guide Real Oviedo OpponentsScoreGranada1-0 (W)Sporting Gijon1-0 (W)Eibar1-0 (L)Las Palmas0-0Tenerife0-1 (W)Atletico Madrid OpponentsScoreElche2-0 (W)CD Arenteiro1-3 (W)Ponferradina2-4 (W)SD Almazan0-2 (W)Mallorca1-0 (L)Head to Head Last 5 MatchesResultReal Oviedo lost to Atletico Madrid0-2Real Oviedo lost to Atletico Madrid2-3Atletico Madrid drew with Real Oviedo0-0Real Oviedo drew with Atletico Madrid2-2Atletico Madrid beat Real Oviedo5-0Real Oviedo vs Atletico Madrid Live Schedule and Fixture The Copa del Rey match between Real Oviedo and Atletico Madrid will take place at Estadio Nuevo Carlos Tartiere on Thursday at 12:30 am IST.
Firo Foto/Getty ImagesReal Oviedo sealed their promotion back to the Liga Adelante after more than a decade away last season, finishing eight points clear at the top of their Segunda B group and going on to beat Cadiz and Gimnastic Tarragona in the play-offs. Since then, they have been looking to recruit established players from the second tier or above, including Borja Gomez of Granada and goalkeeper Ruben Mino, formerly of Mallorca. The club hit worldwide renown in 2012 when they were on the verge of going out of business and launched a share scheme that went viral, ending in over 30, 000 people buying a stake in the club. The majority share is owned by Carlos Slim, one of the world's richest men. Football journalist Sid Lowe spoke to CNN after promotion was sealed last season to describe the situation:My personal reaction was, 'bloody hell, it's actually going to happen.
' Nestor Susaeta, who took the corner that led to the goal, summed it up very well when he said 'in a way this is even bigger than getting promoted to the first division, because this is the impossible step'. And it's true, getting out of the third tier, because of the way it's structured, was almost the hardest thing to do.
They have managed four victories along with a draw and a narrow defeat in their last six outings. Due to this run, the club have been able to climb up to a mid table position in the Segunda Division. They currently sit at 14th, 11 points off the summit. Oviedo have overcome the challenges of RS Gimnastica and Granada in the previous rounds of the cup to advance to this stage. Atletico Madrid have experienced inconsistent results in their recent encounters. In their last six matches, they have four wins to go with a defeat and a draw. It has been a very disappointing season for Atletico who failed to advance past the group stages in the Champions League or even retain a European place. Diego Simeone’s side are just able to keep themselves in the Champions League position in La Liga by a thin margin of just two points.
Real Oviedo vs. Atletico Madrid: Team News, Preview, Live Stream & TV InfoGonzalo Arroyo Moreno/Getty ImagesPre-season workouts continue around Europe and in Spain.

Real Oviedo, not seen in Spain's top flight since 2001, won their Segunda B group last term so have a campaign in Spain's second tier coming up for 2015-16, their highest placing in the league system since 2003.

In La Liga, Diego Simeone’s team currently sit fourth, following a narrow 2-0 victory over the league’s bottom club Elche last Thursday. João Félix and Álvaro Morata on target at Cívitas Metropolitano. Having ended-up rock bottom of their Champions League group in autumn, a Copa del Rey run should be a priority for Atleti. Hosts Real Oviedo though will believe they can cause a famous upset. Los Azules are one of Spain’s fallen giants, having been all the way down to fourth-tier since their 13 year stay in La Liga came to an end in 2001. Right now, Oviedo are enjoying an eighth successive season in the Segunda División, but are currently 14th.
