ATLETICO IN DEFENDER SHORTAGE AHEAD OF FINAL CALDERON GAME

Injuries and suspensions will result in Diego Simeone only having a couple of defenders to pick from for Atletico Madrid’s last LaLiga match against Athletic Club.

Although they’ve already secured Champions League qualification, Los Rojiblancos intend to give the Estadio Vicente Calderon a glorious farewell and the drought of defenders has produced a terrible headache for ‘Cholo.’

The Argentinian coach will not be able to count on Diego Godin for a second consecutive match, as well as Jose Gimenez and Filipe Luis, who are both ineligible after being booked on Sunday against Real Betis and receiving a one match ban.

Lucas Hernandez and Saul Niguez are the main candidates to occupy the left and right-back positions, while the central defensive duo will consist of Thomas and Stefan Savic.
