Atletico Madrid prepare for Celta with full squad

Madrid, May 11 (IANS) Atletico Madrid trained on Wednesday ahead of the penultimate La Liga match next Saturday against Celta de Vigo with all available footballers.

Chief coach Diego Simeone inspected the training with 22 players from the first team, plus young goalkeepers Bernabe Barragan and Carlos Marin and rising defender Theo Hernandez from the reserve team, reports Efe.

With Portuguese midfielder Tiago Mendes, who was sidelined for over five months, recovered from his leg injury last week, Atletico can count for the second time on all first team players.

After losing 1-2 to Levante in the last Liga match, Atletico lost their shot at competing for the title, freezing at 85 points, three behind leaders Barcelona and two behind second-placed Real Madrid.
