However, he was out of the list of players to face Betis, alongside Óliver, Savic and Carrasco
Atlético's centre-back Diego Godín was seriously injured on the 15th of March, in the Champion's League quarter-finals' second leg against PSV. In that game, Godín suffered a muscular lesion of the biceps femoris on the right leg and the initial predictions were that he would be out three weeks. Despite the initial prediction, the centre-back is already training with the rest of the team, one week before his supposed return date.
It seems therefore that the Uruguayan could play next Tuesday at the Camp Nou, the first leg of the Champion's League quarter-finals, against Barça. However, Simeone doesn't take risks, and he hasn't called him for the game against Betis. Besides Godín, defender Savic and forwards Óliver and Carrasco were also left to rest.
