Atlético de Madrid continues planning the roadmap that will take him to play next day 13 against the Leipzig in the quarterfinals of the Champions League. The mattress box will return to training this Sunday after a week of vacation.
Once I travel to Portugal, he Athletic will train in the sports city of Benfica, the days you are in the neighboring country. But until that happens and taking into account that 20 days remain until the clash against the German team can be played, the Athletic look for two friendlies so as not to lose the rhythm of the game.
It is the same as Leipzig
has done since next week he will play a game against Wolfsburg
. For his part, the Atlético de Madrid will prepare in the Cerro del Espino de Majadahonda Sports City, the assault on Champions League.
According to the newspaper As, Atlético is looking for two rivals to play two games, although in this case it will be difficult because in Spanish football almost everyone is already on vacation. The dates for these friendlies will be, in principle, the next August 1 and 6.
At the moment, Simeone only has the casualties for the return to work of Vrsaljko and of Thomas, this one injured in the last match against the Real
Society and whose participation in Champions it is very doubtful.
