Arias, down to Leganés for a left thigh injury


The Colombian player of Atlético de Madrid, Santiago Arias, will not play this Sunday in the League against Leganés (12.00 hours) for having suffered a left thigh injury, according to the red and white club after the preparatory session on Saturday.

The coffee grower, who was injured in the Copa match against Cultural Leonesa, ended up with discomfort in the thigh and after undergoing tests the medical part indicates that he suffers an injury to the adductor musculature of the left thigh.

“Our side is pending evolution,” added the communication of Atlético de Madrid, which loses the Colombian – at least – for the derby against Leganés. In this way, coach Diego Pablo Simeone, who maintains the doubt of Trippier, must improvise for the right back.

The 'Cholo' can opt for a youth player or the Croatian Sime Vrsaljko, but he has not competed for almost a year for a knee injury. The Argentine will not be able to count on Diego Costa, Koke and Lemar, who did not train on Saturday.
