Atletico Madrid Simeone has 21 players in his squad
Atletico Madrid have flown to Bucharest this Sunday, ahead of their Champions League first leg against Chelsea on Tuesday. They’ve made the trip with several players forced to stay behind.
Yannick Carrasco, Sime Vrsaljko, Jose Maria Gimenez, Hector Herrera and Kieran Trippier are all unavailable for Diego Simeone for various reasons.
Carrasco, Vrsaljko and Gimenez are all still out with injuries, with Gimenez the latest name to end up on the injury report after suffering an issue during Saturday’s home loss to Levante.
Herrera, meanwhile, is still out due to COVID-19, while Trippier is still missing due to his ban.
These five absences mean that there are just 17 first-team players available for this game, with youth teamers Miguel San Roman, Alvaro Garcia, Ricard Sanchez and Sergio Camello called up to form a 21-man squad.
The complete squad for this game is as follows: Jan Oblak, Ivo Grbic, Miguel San Roman, Renan Lodi, Stefan Savic, Felipe, Mario Hermoso, Alvaro García, Ricard Sanchez, Geoffrey Kondogbia, Lucas Torreira, Koke, Saul, Thomas Lemar, Marcos Llorente, Vitolo, Joao Felix, Luis Suarez, Angel Correa, Moussa Dembele and Sergio Camello.
