Atlético Madrid are likely to be without José Giménez for their next game, against Real Betis in LaLiga, as the defender is injured again.

Atlético Madrid have confirmed a scan has diagnosed defender José Giménez with a hamstring injury.

The centre-back had to be substituted in Atlético's 3-1 defeat of Club Brugge in the Champions League on Wednesday.

Giménez had been a doubt for last weekend's El Derbi against Real Madrid but was passed to play the game, which ended goalless.

But the 23-year-old could have a spell on the sidelines after tests confirmed he has a hamstring injury.
