Although both are still on the sidelines, both the French and the English could be in the game in Sunday’s match
Optimism at Atlético regarding the option that two of his undisputed players are ready to face the Eibar on Sunday. The game, vital to continue at the top, will have the safe casualties of Luis Suárez, muscle injury, and Joao Félix, ankle sprain. Nothing to do with the reality of Thomas Lemar and Kieran Trippier, footballers who despite not exercising today with the group have real options to reach the next duel in the Metropolitan.
Remember that the French was low at the last minute in the visit to Villamarín. He was destined to play as a starter, as in recent months when he is available, but he was left out of the summoned list of a match that ended in a draw … and with the rojiblancos recovering the leadership to which Madrid had risen after the Classic.
In the case of the Englishman, he did play against Betis, but a strong blow to the back prevented him from finishing the match. Like the Frenchman, the winger is indisputable in an Atlético who would have to pull Vrsaljko if finally Trippier does not arrive, something that they hope will not be the case in an optimistic club with the presence of both.
