After last Saturday's victory against Celta in Balaídos (0-2) Atlético have started preparing their next match. It will be his debut in the Champions League visiting the current champion, Bayern Munich, at the Allianz Arena. For this, Simeone has arranged a session in which he has had several absences. Saúl and Giménez remain on the sidelines of the group, as has been the case for most of the past week, and Diego Costa has joined them, who was injured in the duel against the Galicians and will be three weeks off.
On the other hand, other players about whom there were doubts about their participation have jumped to work normally with the rest of their teammates. Are the cases of Lodi and Torreira. The Brazilian side did not enter the list for the match against Celta and it was unknown if he was experiencing discomfort or was simply to give him rest. Everything indicates that it was the latter and that Simeone preferred to leave him at home to recover from the wear and tear of the two games played with his team and the transoceanic trip he made. Taking into account that he is an essential player for Cholo and that on Wednesday they will have to face one of the most fit teams on the continent, the coach wanted to save him the trip to Vigo so that he is in full condition for Munich.
For its part, the Uruguayan made his debut for Atlético last Saturday after his signing on the last market day. It left a good feeling on its premiere, but the game ended very cramped. However, today has participated in the session as one more, exercising with the rest with total normality, which indicates that it is available for the rojiblancos' Champions League debut. With Saul still absent, It is likely that the Uruguayan will be back in the starting eleven in the rojiblancos' visit to the Bavarian capital.
