The injuries that separate Simeone's trident
The first setback came in preseason. The course had not started and Joao Felix was already sidelined after a blow during the friendly with Numancia.
And with 2019-20 already started, the pains continued for the trident. Both Morata and Costa missed several games due to injury.
The last one to fall, Joao Felix. During the clash against Valencia he had to withdraw with a sprain in the right ankle.
So, we'll have to wait to see the three attackers together again. Simeone will not be able to count on Joao Felix for the clash against Bayer Leverkusen. An undoubtedly difficult injury for a team that is struggling to find their best form.
