Madrid, Oct 23 (IANS) Spanish football giants Atletico Madrid went through their final training session on Tuesday ahead of the UEFA Champions League group stage clash with Borussia Dortmund.

Star forwards Antoine Griezmann and Diego Costa, midfielder Jorge “Koke” Resurreccion and defender Juanfran Torres all took part in the practice along with the available first team players, under the direction of coach Diego Simeone.

After two matches, Borussia Dortmund leads Champions League Group A with six points, ahead of second-placed Atletico Madrid on goal difference.
