Godin fit to play Barca

Diego Godin has recovered from a thigh injury and is fit for Atletico Madrid’s game against Barcelona on Saturday.

The Uruguay international had suffered discomfort in his right thigh following the Copa del Rey draw with Valencia, Mundo Deportivo reports, but was able to train later in the week. Godin is expected to start the match.

Juanfran is also available after the defender’s yellow card against Malaga was overturned by the Competition Committee. He had originally been booked for bringing down Antunes, but the committee decided that Antunes had dived.

Atletico Coach Diego Simeone will however be without Mario Suarez, who is not fully recovered from the knee injury that has seen him miss the last 13 games.
