Griezmann with a hamstring problem

The France international might miss the game against Betis due to a muscle injury he picked up against Chelsea in the Champions League.

Atlético Madrid star Antoine Griezmann remains a question mark for Simeone’s team as Atléti prepare to take on Real Betis in La Liga on Sunday. The Frenchman has a hamstring strain and it is not yet established whether he will be able to pull off a speedy recovery and make himself available for Los Rojiblancos in the weekend.

Diego Simeone certainly hopes that Griezmann will be able to feature in the La Liga game since the Frenchman appears to be on the right path to finding his best form once again.

Meanwhile Atléti could not beat the reigning Premier League champions Chelsea as they were held 1-1 at Stamford Bridge. The result was not fitting for Los Rojiblancos as they failed to qualify for the knockout stage of the Champions League, ultimately taking a spot in the Europa League instead.
