Godin injured at San Mames

Bad news for Atletico Madrid as defender Diego Godin was injured in the clash against Athletic Bilbao. He was forced to exit the action prematurely owing to a muscle injury.

The Rojiblancos will be worried because the Uruguayan suffered a similar injury against PSV Eindhoven in the Champions League. The defender did not return to action until the quater-final against Barcelona at the Capm Nou.

Coach Diego Simeone will need Godin for the semi-final against Bayern Munich next Wednesday. If the player cannot shake off his muscle problem, the inexperienced Lucas Hernandez will have to take his place for the crucial tie.
