João Félix, injured

The Atlético striker had to be substituted in the 41st minute with ankle problems. Carrasco did not play for Belgium either due to discomfort.


Bad news at Atlético. João Félix had to leave replaced in the 41st minute of the match that faced the Portuguese team against Luxembourg due to ankle discomfort. The rojiblanco player started for the first time during the international break after having had a secondary role against Azerbaijan (15 minutes) and Serbia (the last six) and will return to Madrid for more medical tests before the return of LaLiga, next Sunday against Sevilla.

João Félix must be a very important piece in Atlético's fight for the League title, with ten games to play and a four-point advantage over Barcelona and six over Real Madrid, but he has suffered a setback that remains to be seen if it can take you off the pitch in the next matches. Simeone praised his performance against Chelsea and pointed out that it was the way forward in his progression, but after missing the duel against Alavés due to suspension, he concentrated on Portugal and will return from the break the less touched.

Same case as Carrasco, who has not been able to participate in any of Belgium's three commitments also due to ankle problems. The rojiblanco player would drag joint discomfort since the duel against Alavés, although in his case he was insured in Seville due to a penalty. Atlético recover seven internationals: Kondogbia, Oblak, Vrsaljko, Savic, Herrera, João Félix and Carrasco after concluding their respective meetings with the national team, but the latter two return with physical problems. On Wednesday's match, Koke, Llorente, Trippier and Lemar will do it and in the rojiblanco club they cross their fingers so that there are no more consequences of the last stoppage for national teams before the end of the League.
