Chelsea are handed a major boost as Atletico Madrid will be without their key defender during the UCL show between both sides
Atletico suffered a shocking defeat today to 8th placed Levante as the side trashed the league leaders 2-0 at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium.
The Spaniards remain with just one victory in their last four games, drawing two and losing the one.
Having not suffered only a loss, Atletico Madrid are now facing a major setback as they will have to face Chelsea without José Giménez.
The defender suffered a huge knock during their defeat today and will join the long list of deducted players.
Despite having just returned from an injury, José Giménez’s muscle injury made it difficult for him to finish off the game today as he was subbed off after indicating inability to continue.
Another name on the injury list is Yannik Carrasco who will also miss the game against Blues.
Thomas Lemar on the other hand is back to the squad and would serve as a bolster to Diego Simeone.
