The Sevilla game is second-placed Atletico’s penultimate La Liga game of the season, before they finish their campaign at Levante on May 19.
The club captain joined from La Liga rivals Villarreal in 2010 for around £6.6m and played a key role in the side’s rise under Diego Simeone.
Godin recently became Uruguay’s most-capped player and has 126 caps and eight goals in an international career spanning 14 years.
