Moyà and Gameiro given green light to make Leicester trip



The keeper and striker are training at the same pace as the rest and enter Simeone's list. Cerci and Griezmann spent part of today's session practicing penalties.

Atlético de Madrid trained this morning at the Cerro del Espino with just seven members of the first team squad: Moyà, Moreira, Koke, Cerci, Griezmann, Tiago and Gameiro. Moyà and Gameiro, who have both been saddled with injury problems, returned to work out with the group and completed a light session which lasted just under an hour. A number of youth team players were drafted in to make up the numbers.

Light recovery workout for Atlético's starters against Osasuna

The eleven players who started yesterday's game against Osasuna: Oblak, Juanfran, Godín, Lucas, Filipe, Gaitán, Carrasco, Thomas, Giménez, Torres and Correa exercised indoors - as did Savic, Gabi and Saúl.

The positive news is that both Moyà and Gameiro have been given the medical all-clear, allowing them to enter the squad list for the Leicester game. Simeone will be taking 20 players to England, leaving just the injured players: Vrslajko and Augusto in Madrid. Tiago, who was given a run-out against Osasuna has also been omitted.

Atlético squad for Leicester quarter-final return leg:

Oblak, Moyá, Moreira, Juanfran, Godín, Giménez, Savic, Lucas, Filipe, Gabi, Koke, Saúl, Cerci, Thomas, Gaitán, Carrasco, Correa, Gameiro, Griezmann and Torres.

Free-kicks and penalty practice

Curiously, at the end of the session, Cerci, Griezmann and Koke stayed behind to put in some extra shooting practice. Griezmann teed up two direct free-kicks with a wall and fired in both then took two penalties - one going in, the other striking the post. Cerci also practiced spot-kicks while Koke wound down with a few free-kicks from various points outside of the area.
