Diego Godin, Koke back for Atletico Madrid

Atletico Madrid have welcome back Diego Godin and Koke into their squad ahead of this week’s clash with Juventus but remain without a trio of stars.

Godin was a doubt after his thigh pulled up during Atleti’s final training session before their 1-0 win against Leganes on Saturday – for which he was suspended – but is now back for the trip to Turin.

The Uruguayan is said to have already agreed a move to Inter this summer and he is also joined in Diego Simeone’s squad by returning midfielder Koke.

However, Atleti are still without a trio of key first-team players as Diego Costa, Lucas Hernandez and Filipe Luis all remain unavailable due to injuries.

Simeone’s side lead 2-0 from the first leg of their Round of 16 tie from last months after goals from Jose Maria Gimenez and Diego Godin.

Atleti squad to face Juve: Adan, Oblak, Alex; Godin, Arias, Savic, Gimenez, Montero; Koke, Saul, Lemar, Rodri, Vitolo, Carro, Joaquin; Griezmann, Kalinic, Correa, Morata
