Arda, Mario doubts for midweek

Arda Turan has returned to work on the field today, but is still seen as a doubt to make Atletico Madrid’s midweek clash with Austria Wien.

The Turkish international has been out of action since mid-October’s defeat at Espanyol struggling predominantly with a hamstring issue.

Today’s training session with Los Colchoneros has seen his return to working on grass, albeit on the margins of the main group working to an individual programme.

Even so, it is still believed that Arda remains a doubt for Atletico’s midweek Champions League home clash with Austria Wien.

Meanwhile, Mario Suarez’s presence is also in doubt, as he followed up missing the weekend win over Athletic Bilbao by continuing to work in the gym today on a knee injury.
