Atletico Madrid thrashed Rayo Majadahonda 5-0 at the Estadio Wanda Metropolitano in the Copa del Rey on Thursday night, but there was one piece of bad news as Antoine Griezmann came off injured in the second half.
The Frenchman was making his return from an injury suffered in December’s derby against Real Madrid, as he came on at half time to score Los Rojiblancos‘ fourth goal.
Shortly after that, Griezmann felt discomfort in the same muscle which had kept him sidelined for almost a month.
It’s unusual for the forward, who had only missed four games in the 10 years of his career, but he now faces another spell in the stands.
Diego Simeone is waiting for further tests to see the extent of the injury, but it could mean that Griezmann misses the Supercopa de Espana next week.
