Atlético trained this morning with its sights set on Tuesday’s Champions League match against Porto (9:00 p.m.). The rojiblanco team did so after the defeat against Mallorca, which complicates the fight for the league title. In the session, those who did not play against the Mallorcan team or those who did with the game started were trained. The headlines had a gym session.
The good news for Cholo is that Giménez and Carrasco worked out alongside the rest of their teammates. The Uruguayan defender’s contest seems essential, since Simeone has several casualties in the center of the rear: Felipe is sanctioned and Savic, injured. The only center-back available was Hermoso and Giménez signed up for the first rojiblanca final of the week. The Argentine coach has two of the four centers available. The Uruguayan did not play against Mallorca after suffering a contracture against Cádiz.
Carrasco also exercised, who did not play against the Mallorcan team either. Atlético can choose in the offensive part, since it has all its players at its disposal: Luis Suárez, Cunha, Correa, Griezmann, João Félix, Lemar, Carrasco … Cholo did not remove Luis Suárez from the start against Mallorca and could be a starter against Porto.
Trippier also exercised in the work session, although it seems complicated that it could be in the Champions League match. The players were divided into two groups. The defenders did defensive work while the forwards practiced shots on goal.
Atlético will train on Monday morning in Madrid and He will leave at 20:30 towards Porto. The team will arrive in the Portuguese city just for dinner.
