Zaragoza's miserable form at home continued last weekend as they were beaten for the sixth time in nine games at La Romareda this season by Betis.
Jose Maria Movilla and Alvaro Gonzalez are also suspended for the trip to the Viicente Calderon so there are likely to be returns to the starting XI for Franco Zuculini and Javier Paredes.
Atleti remain the only side yet to drop points at home in the league with nine wins from nine and 14 wins out of 14 in all competitions.
However, Zaragoza have been better on the road this season with four wins away from home, including their last two trips at Rayo Vallecano and Athletic Bilbao.
Nevertheless, Manolo Jimenez's men have been comfortably beaten in their tougher tests away from home at Real Madrid and Barcelona, and with Atleti having all their key men back it is hard to see their amazing home streak ending this weekend.
