Antoine Griezmann will miss Atlético Madrid´s match against Real Betis on Sunday after picking up an injury to his right thigh in the 1-1 draw against Chelsea on Tuesday evening.
Griezmann to undergo tests
The club stated on Wednesday that the French striker will undergo further tests to determine the severity of the injury.
Given that the LaLiga trip to the Benito Villamarín is only a few days away, the plan is to allow Griezmann to recuperate slowly with a view to returning against Alavés the following week.
Atlético out of the Champions League
Atlético dropped out of the Champions League in the group stage for the first time since the 2009-10 season with the draw in London.
Diego Simeone's side needed a victory at Stamford Bridge, and for Qarabag to hold Roma in Italy. Neither of those desired results materialised.
