Atlético Madrid have been handed a fitness boost after defender Diego Godín was cleared to play in Tuesday's Champions League quarter-final first leg against Barcelona.

The Uruguayan suffered a hamstring injury against PSV Eindhoven in the second leg of the competition's last 16 in mid-March.

Godín comes off injured against PSV.

The problem saw Godín miss Atlético's LaLiga clashes with Sporting Gijón and Real Betis, in addition to his country's recent World Cup qualifiers.

Ahead of Atleti's weekend win over Betis, coach Diego Simeone had already confirmed that he expected Godín to be available for the trip to the Camp Nou.
