Joao Felix and Correa make a comeback to Atletico’s team lineup
Atletico Madrid manager, Diego Simeone, has included Joao Felix and Angel Correa in the squad for their upcoming league match against Rayo Vallecano. Both players were absent in the previous match against Betis. However, there are concerns regarding Felix’s future as he has publicly expressed his desire to join Barcelona, and the transfer window is about to close.
On the injury front, Atletico Madrid will be without Thomas Lemar, Koke Resurreccion, Jose Maria Gimenez, and Reinildo Mandava for the upcoming match.
Correa has recovered from an ankle injury sustained in the first match against Granada, while Felix has overcome some discomfort. However, the uncertainty surrounding his future continues.
It is expected that Felix will leave the club before the transfer window closes, given his public desire to join Barcelona. This could be his last few matches for Atletico Madrid.
The complete squad selected by Simeone for the match includes Jan Oblak, Ivo Grbic, and Antonio Gomis as goalkeepers. The defenders are Nahuel Molina, Ilias Kostis, Cesar Azpilicueta, Caglar Soyuncu, Stefan Savic, Axel Witsel, Mario Hermoso, and Javi Galan. The midfielders are Marcos Llorente, Pablo Barrios, Rodrigo de Paul, Saul Niguez, Rodrigo Riquelme, Samuel Lino, and Yannick Carrasco. The forwards are Antoine Griezmann, Angel Correa, Memphis Depay, Joao Felix, and Alvaro Morata.
