Atletico Madrid’s Filipe Luis faces three weeks out

Atletico Madrid defender Filipe Luis is set for three weeks out after sustaining a thigh injury against Real Valladolid on Saturday.

It was another injury for the Brazilian who had recently sat out the matches against Girona, Alaves and Club Brugge due to an injury.

The 33-year-old was taken off after the hour mark in Saturday’s 3-2 victory at Real Valladolid, replaced by utility player Thomas Partey.

The injury problems have been stacking up for Diego Simeone’s side in recent weeks with striker Diego Costa and a number of defenders unavailable for selection.

Jose Maria Gimenez and Lucas Hernandez are currently sidelined for Los Rojiblancos but Saturday’s clash with Espanyol is the club’s last game of 2018.
