Atlético de Madrid midfielder Pablo Barrios will miss the derby against Real Madrid next Sunday in LaLiga EA Sports after suffering a muscle injury this Tuesday in the duel against Lazio and aggravating the problems for Diego Pablo Simeone in the midfield.

“Pablo Barrios suffers a muscle injury in his right leg, as determined by the tests carried out. Barrios will begin receiving physiotherapy sessions, will undergo readaptation training and his progress is pending,” Atlético said in a statement.

The young 20-year-old youth squad had to be replaced by José María Giménez at half-time of the Champions League debut against Lazio and precisely after having been the author of the 0-1 draw. His loss joins those that Diego Pablo Simeone already has in the center of the field where he will not be able to count on either the Argentine Rodrigo de Paul or the Frenchman Thomas Lemar, although it seems that he will recover captain Koke Resurrección, who has been out since the first day. garter
