Atlético Madrid's training session had limited first team involvement due to international matches and injuries, but support for the manager was there.

The Atlético Madrid squad returned to training during the international break with a number of players away representing their countries. From the first team only Koke, Juanfran, Diego Costa, Kalinic and Adam worked out as normal, and fans of the club were there with banners showing their support for manager Diego Simeone, just as they had done on Tuesday.

Simeone support from the sides

While this was going on, Filipe, Lucas, Arias and Vitolo continued their recovery, something that the international break can help with. Atlético only have Juanfran fit amongst their four specialist full-backs but over the next week or so this should change.

The Rojiblancos worked on their shooting, led by Prof Ortega but under the watchful eye of Simeone and assistant Mono Burgos.
