Godin working hard to return to fitnes

Atletico vs Rayo: Godin starts running, as defender nears return from injury

April 30, 2016 By Ali M.
The Uruguayan center-back hurt his hamstring, keeping him out of Los Rojiblancos' last two games.

The Liga BBVA race is set for a very exciting final three games, as Barcelona, Atletico Madrid, and Real Madrid all have a realistic chance of lifting the Spanish Primera Division title.

The Blaugrana currently lead the standings with 82 points; Los Rojiblancos sit in second due to an inferior goal difference, whilst Les Merengues occupy third spot, a point behind their two rivals.

Fortunately for the Vicente Calderon side, they could soon welcome back a key figure to their squad as they make a last-gap push to rob Messi and Co. of their crown, as captain Diego Godin nears a return from injury.

The Uruguayan center-back has missed his club’s last two games – both 1-0 victories in the league over Malaga and in Europe over Bayern Munich – having injured his hamstring during the win over Athletic Bilbao.

Atletico Madrid’s next game is a home clash with Rayo Vallecano; however, Saturday’s game comes too early for the 30-year-old defender, as he failed to train with the squad on Friday.

Marca, however, write that Diego Godin is putting in “extra work” to return to full fitness in time for Tuesday’s crucial Champions League game: an away clash with the Bavarians.

The club from the Spanish capital will need their skipper if they wish to avoid defeat at the Allianz Arena, with the player boasting a great chance of recovering for the 2nd leg tie, having started running and passing again.
