Atlético Madrid have confirmed captain Diego Godín has been sidelined by a thigh problem, the centre-back adding to the injury problems for the LaLiga title hopefuls.

Godin, who has been linked with a move to Inter, was forced off at half-time of Atlético's 2-0 home win against Getafe on Saturday.

Not clear whether Godín will make Juventus clash

Atleti host Juventus in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie on 20 February and it is unclear whether Godin will be available.

"Our captain has undergone an MRI at the Clínica Universidad de Navarra and the results offered by the medical services of the club indicates that he suffers an elongation in the adductor muscle of the right thigh and remains pending evolution," a club statement said.
