Herrera and Giménez return

Atlético departed this afternoon for Bilbao to face Athletic tomorrow (21:00) in matchday 34 of LaLiga Santander. And Simeone does it with 21 footballers by his side. Two ‘signings’ between them: Herrera and Giménez. The two return a month later after having overcome muscle injuries and are in the squad for the game. The one missing is Savic, who saw the fifth yellow card against Granada.

Two other returns are those of Kondogbia and Felipe, after having both served a one-match ban against, precisely, Granada. In addition, the Argentine coach he quoted Giuliano and Javi Serrano, from the quarry, the two already debuting with the first team. In the last game, the midfielder started (he played 45′) while the striker made his debut in 90′, another Simeone defending the red and white team on the pitch. His season with B has been spectacular, the team’s top scorer and the best footballer in the category.
