ATLETICO CONFIRM GODIN INJURY

Atletico Madrid will be without Diego Godin as they look to get their season back on track against Celta Vigo on Sunday after the defender suffered an adductor injury.

Godin was substituted in the 49th minute of Tuesday’s absorbing 1-1 draw at Barcelona, which sent the Catalans through to the Copa del Rey final 3-2 on aggregate following a second leg that saw three players sent off.

Diego Simeone’s side have not lost in six league games ahead of Sunday’s visit of Celta, but are set to be without their defensive lynchpin for two weeks, according to local reports.

Luis Hernandez – Godin’s replacement on Tuesday – is expected to stand trial in a domestic abuse case later this month.
