The 7 he injured an ankle with Portugal and was low against Sevilla. During the past week he was training to arrive in conditions against Betis, He was finally able to play, but bad luck reigned in with the Atlético striker, who is not being able to help his team in this final stretch of the season. Against Betis he tried to continue on the pitch, but the pain was intense and he had to leave the pitch.

A streak of obstacles

João Félix did not play against Alavés due to accumulation of cautions. Later he did not do it against Sevilla, this time due to injury and against Betis he could only play a little more than a time. Among some things and others, the striker has barely been able to participate with the team in this league final stretch. Against Betis he was especially active when combining with Correa and Carrasco. In one of those actions, Atlético's goal came, the work of the Belgian footballer.

The forward played a great game in the Champions League against Chelsea, where he had several scoring chances and was the most active rojiblanco. But the national team break penalized him, since he returned injured. This season he has scored ten goals and given five assists for the rojiblanco team. In the medical corps they hope that their ankle problems will subside and can be before Huesca. It would be excellent news for Cholo, who also does not have another of his offensive strongholds, Luis Suárez.

Simeone's problems accumulate, although against Eibar he will recover Marcos Llorente and Kondogbia. The competition of the former is very important due to the lack of Atletico troops at the attack point.
