Rodrigo de Paul will be low for this Saturday’s derby against tough Real Madrid for a left thigh muscle injury confirmed by Atlético de Madrid this Wednesday.
This is a new victim for Diego Simeone, coach of Atlético de Madrid, who had put the midfielder starter in the last five games.
The world champion with the Argentina national team was injured in last Sunday’s match against Athletic Club at the Metropolitan Stadium.
“Rodrigo de Paul has suffered a muscle injury to his left thigh, which was diagnosed after undergoing medical tests,” the rojiblanco club announced on Wednesday ahead of morning training at the Ciudad Deportiva in the Madrid city of Majadahonda.
The club has indicated that the Argentine will begin receiving physiotherapy sessions, “he will undergo rehabilitation training and his evolution is awaited”.
Atlético do not specify a period of loss, even if this type of injury requires a minimum of two weeks of recovery, so he will not be able to play the following Saturday against Sevilla either.
De Paul’s injury joins Sergio Reguilón among the safe victims for next Saturday’s duel. The full-back has also suffered from a muscle ailment since Monday.
