Diego Godin could miss Juventus clash due to injury

Atletico Madrid captain Diego Godin is an injury doubt for Diego Simeone's side ahead of their Champions League last 16 tie at Juventus on Tuesday. 

Godin scored in Los Rojiblancos' 2-0 win in the first leg at the Wanda Metropolitano on February 20th, but an ankle problem has thrown his second leg participation into doubt. 

The Uruguayan international is suspended for the La Liga clash with local rivals Leganes on Saturday, after collecting five La Liga bookings so far this season, and Simeone is hopeful the additional rest with boost his fitness bid.

The experienced defender would be a key absence if he misses the trip to Turin, with Simeone set to pair Stefan Savic with Jose Gimenez, if they 33 year-old fails a fitness test.
