Low key at Atlético for the Champions League and an important doubt at United

Bad news for Atlético de Madrid ahead of their imminent match against Manchester United in the Champions League. Despite the fact that Simeone was hopeful after the match against Cádiz regarding the state of health of José María Giménez, the center-back suffers a micro-tear in the soleus and will be out for about three weeks.

The center-back had to retire after 82 minutes of the game with muscular problems and this Saturday the medical services of Atlético de Madrid confirmed the injury. Simeone will not be able to count on a permanent fixture in his schedule on Tuesday, March 15 at Old Trafford in what will be the second leg of the Champions League round of 16.

The loss of the Uruguayan is important for Atlético ahead of the Manchester match, although Simeone will be able to count on Savic and Philip sure and probably also with Hermoso. In any case, the third centre-back, from the left, has been for Reinildo in recent games.

What happens to Bruno Fernandes?

It has been a Saturday of many doubts regarding Manchester United in the run-up to their match against Tottenham. In England the media reported that David de Gea, Bruno Fernandes and Scott McTominay they would be absent for the match after testing positive for COVID-19. It was a false alarm… but maybe not entirely.

David De Gea was able to play the game after giving “a false positive” but Bruno Fernandes is not available and is not even on the bench for a match in which, by the way, Cristiano Ronaldo returns. United manager Ralf Rangnick has assured that “Bruno is ill, unfortunately. He was unable to train yesterday and is not available for the match. However, he will be back on Tuesday.” If so, the Portuguese midfielder will be against Atlético de Madrid.

And McTominay? There is still no information because it was certain that he would not play this Saturday since he has some physical discomfort.
