Atleti trio set to miss Moscow trip

Jan Oblak, Diego Costa and Kevin Gameiro all look set to sit out Atletico Madrid’s Europa League tie away at Lokomotiv Moscow.

Diego Simeone’s side lead 3-0 from the first leg and are on course for the competition’s quarter finals and may opt to avoid any risks in the return leg on Thursday.

All three injury risks sat out first-team training on Tuesday, with Gameiro carrying a knock to his adductor leg muscle and Costa suffering from suspected concussion.

Oblak surprisingly returned to the starting line-up for Atleti’s 3-0 victory at home to Celta Vigo on Sunday following a muscular problem but may now return to the sidelines.

Axel Werner looks set to deputise once more in Moscow with starts up front likely for Fernando Torres, Antoine Griezmann and Angel Correa.
