The Uruguayan striker of Atlético Madrid Luis Suárez, who had to retire at the beginning of training this Wednesday due to some discomfort, suffers a muscle injury in his left leg, as confirmed by the club after subjecting him to medical tests.
The medical report published by Atlético on its website indicates that the attacker suffers “a muscle injury in the left leg” without further details about the area of the leg or the severity of the ailment and adds that the footballer “is pending evolution.”
Suárez, in any case, could not play the next day against Betis on Sunday 11 at the Benito Villamarín stadium because he is suspended, since he received his fifth yellow last Sunday, just like Marcos Llorente and the French Geoffrey Kondogbia.
The Uruguayan footballer, Atlético’s top scorer with 19 conquests, therefore has eleven days to recover of this ailment for the next match, on Sunday 18 against Eibar at the Wanda Metropolitano.
Without his presence, the rojiblanco attack only has as options for the main squad the Portuguese Joao Félix and the Argentine Ángel Correa, since the French striker Moussa Dembélé continues to exercise separately after the blackout due to a drop in tension that he had two weeks ago in training.
