Atlético returned to work after enjoying a rest day. The rojiblanco team began preparing next Sunday’s game against Espanyol (16:00) during their visit to Cornellà. Diego Costa was the main novelty after staying out of the call against Villarreal for some lumbar discomfort and not exercising on Monday with the group. The Spanish-Brazilian, who again had minutes in the match against Liverpool after his cervical disc operation He worked as one more and points to the parakeet team. Of course, he was not present in the final training exercises with a major emphasis on air play, where he still has to move very cautiously. Thomas also missed that section to work alone in the gym. So, Simeone’s only absence was Lemar, who suffered a muscle injury to the reds. The Cholo has been recovering troops, with the recovery of João Félix and Trippier for the game against Villarreal last Sunday being key in the win. Hector Herrera is also fully recovered. They were previously returning Giménez, Morata or Costa itself.João Félix, author of the third goal against the yellow submarine, I could go back to eleven to visit Espanyol. Simeone would think of an offensive trident formed by the Portuguese, Correa and Morata. Trippier could also be of the game in Cornellà, occupying the right side after a very rapid recovery of his pubalgia operation. The English would form a defensive line with Savic, Felipe and Lodi.
