2 in, 4 out: Atlético Madrid squad latest ahead of Las Palmas

An update on the personnel situation in Diego Simeone’s Atlético Madrid squad has today been forthcoming online.

Atléti are currently in the process of putting the finishing touches on preparations for a return to action on Saturday evening.

Fresh off a concerning pair of successive defeats, the capital giants are set to play host to Las Palmas, no doubt desperate for a bounce-back result.

And such endeavours look set to be aided by the return of two key members of boss Simeone’s squad.

As confirmed by Diario Sport, José María Giménez continued to ramp up preparations for his comeback from injury on Wednesday, taking part in full training alongside the rest of his teammates.

And also set for a return to matchday duties on Saturday is Saúl Ñíguez, forced to sit out against Sevilla last weekend due to suspension.

On the other hand, absent from training in the buildup to the latest round of La Liga fixtures were sidelined Atlético trio Álvaro Morata, César Azpilicueta, and Thomas Lemar.

Ángel Correa, meanwhile, sat out owing to illness, albeit with the expectation that the Argentine will recover in time to play his part against Las Palmas.
