He took an operation on his fifth metatarsal on December 5 in Brazil. The idea was that he would get back by February 20, and was hoping to face Juventus in the Champions League on March 12 at the Wanda.

However he is recovering quickly and Diego Simeone may even have him available by February 9, to face Real Madrid in La Liga.

Atletico have suffered a lot of injury problems this season, 33 in total. This weekend they have seven players out and Angel Correa suspended, as they host Getafe in a Madrid derby.
