No rest for Atlético whose thoughts turn to La Real

Those who started the derby didn't take to the practice pitch in Sunday's session. Carrasco is doubtful for Tuesday's visit from Real Sociedad.

No rest for Atlético whose thoughts turn to La Real

Atlético were straight back out on the practice pitches in Majadahonda this morning - the derby is now forgotten about and thoughts focused on Tuesday's visit from Real Sociedad. Those who started Saturday's game against Real Madrid worked out in the warmth of the gym while those who came on later in the game or didn't feature at all took part in a mini-practice match alongside several players from the reserves and youth teams. Moyà, Gámez, Lucas, Kranevitter, Óliver, Thomas, Correa and Vietto were involved in the mini-match, closely observed by Simeone and Germán Burgos.

The injured players - Carrasco, Savic and Tiago also exercised inside the gym. Atlético have had no time to savour yesterday's derby win and have already started preparing for La Real. El Cholo's players will bring to an end a marathon of matches in which they've hardlly had the chance to catch their breath: PSV, Real Madrid and Real Sociedad in less than a week.

It is looking highly unlikely that Carrasco will be declared fit for Tuesday's game - he could be reserved for next weekend's meeting with Valencia.
