Atlético trained this morning with their sights set on the match against Betis. The session was marked by the injury of Luis Suárez, who withdrew from training due to muscular discomfort that was later confirmed. Suárez's mishap can be very expensive for Simeone. The estimated time of absence is around three weeks, which would make him miss the matches against Eibar, Huesca and Athletic. As AS learned, the goal is for him to return to Elche on May 2, although everything will be pending on the evolution of this muscle injury. The striker was already going to miss the clash this Sunday, this time due to suspension.
The team needs the goals of the Uruguayan in this final stretch of the season to try to conquer a League that is getting complicated as the games go by. The data confirms its good work in the face of the door: he has 19 points in only 35 shots on goal. Luis Suárez lived at Sánchez Pizjuán a complex game where the team's game has declined and takes its toll when it comes to generating chances.
João, Carrasco and Savic they are fully available and that's the great news. Simeone needs them too. The three were carrying out the session normally under the orders of the Argentine coach and everything indicates that they may be in the starting eleven. It must be remembered that Suárez, Llorente and Kondogbia will not be in Seville due to the accumulation of yellows. On the other hand, Marcos Llorente, will carry out individual work these days while Vitolo has an alternative session.
First serious injury
Atleti reported on the Uruguayan situation: “Luis Suárez suffers a muscle injury in his left leg. Our player, after feeling some discomfort in training this Wednesday, underwent medical tests by the club's medical services that confirmed the injury to the Uruguayan international. Evolution is pending. “.
It is the first serious injury of Luis Suárez in his time at Atlético. The Uruguayan striker missed the match against Osasuna, in the rojiblanco team he won 1-3. Nor did he play in the league clash against Barcelona, in which Atlético also won 1-0. The player was absent due to coronavirus. Luis Suárez could play the last matches of the championship again, including the one that the rojiblanco team will play against Barcelona.
