Atletico Madrid Player Out on Leg Injury against Chelsea for Champions League


Yannick Carrasco, after sustaining a leg injury, is a doubt for Atletico Madrid’s Champions League last-16 first leg against Chelsea next week.

On Friday, Atleti announced that Belgium’s global Carrasco had suffered an injury setback, but did not indicate how long it would be out of action.

A club statement said: “Yannick Carrasco has suffered a post-traumatic injury of the left leg musculature, an MRI scan and a medical ultrasound performed at the Clinica Universidad de Navarra confirmed the injury. The Belgian is pending response to treatment.”

The Belgian international from Atletico Madrid sustained an injury blow soon after a spell out due to a positive COVID-19 test.
