Atlético last exercised in Majadahonda before traveling to Vigo tomorrow to face Celta (22:00). If the bad news for Simeone was the confirmation that João Félix will not be able to be in Balaídos, after suffering traumatic bone edema of the ankle, the good ones happen for the reintegration of Felipe to the group after missing the match against Mallorca.
The Brazilian central defender returned from a muscular injury directly to eleven at the Camp Nou, with Hermoso touched and Savic penalized. He had already seen the previous match against Alavés from the bench and against Barcelona completed the match, but he paid for the effort feeling discomfort that prevented him from being last Friday against Mallorca. But Felipe has already returned to the group and, although he is not expected to start against Celta, he could travel to be an alternative to Savic and Giménez.
For his part, Hermoso continues to work on the sidelines and apparently will join the safe losses of João Félix and Diego Costa, sanctioned after seeing his fifth yellow against the vermilion team. The Cholo will offer tomorrow the list of summoned, although the return to the eleventh of Lodi and Thomas, who rested against Mallorca and Arias, in the constant rotation on the right side (Trippier was chosen on Friday). The front, where the losses are accumulated, could be formed by Marcos Llorente and Morata. A victory against Celta would practically fulfill the objective of securing the Champions positions.
