News Team

Diego Simeone, the coach of Atlético de Madrid, has announced the team’s lineup for the upcoming game against Almería. The only absences due to injury are Thomas Lemar, who has been out for sixteen games in a row, and Pablo Barrios, who will miss his second consecutive game. Barrios suffered a torn internal meniscus in his left knee during a game last week and underwent surgery. He is expected to be out of competition until January 2024. Lemar, on the other hand, ruptured his right Achilles tendon in September and is not expected to return until at least February 2024.

The rest of the squad includes goalkeepers Jan Oblak, Ivo Grbic, and Antonio Gomis; defenders Nahuel Molina, César Azpilicueta, Axel Witsel, Stefan Savic, José María Giménez, Caglar Soyuncu, Mario Hermoso, Reinildo Mandava, and Javi Galán; midfielders Koke Resurrección, Marcos Llorente, Saúl Ñíguez, Rayane Belid, and Rodrigo de Paul; wingers Rodrigo Riquelme and Samuel Lino; and forwards Antoine Griezmann, Álvaro Morata, Memphis Depay, and Ángel Correa.

The team is gearing up for the upcoming game against Almería and is hoping to secure a win. With key players out due to injury, Simeone will be relying on the rest of the squad to step up and deliver a strong performance. The fans are eagerly anticipating the game and are looking forward to seeing how the team will fare without some of its star players. Despite the setbacks, the team remains optimistic and is determined to come out on top.
