Filipe Luis endures significant injury


He needed to be replaced after 62 minutes of Thursday’s Europa League round of 16 second-leg tie, which Atleti won 5-1 to advance 8-1 on aggregate, after being captured by the Russian group’s forward Eder.

Filipe Luis left the pitch on a stretcher and Atleti coach Diego Simeone feared the worst in his post-match remarks.

He stated: “I have actually not talked with the physician, let’s hope it is as small as possible. Both Filipe’s and Juanfran, we lose them potentially for Sunday.

” I have the vision of recuperating them when La Liga returns [after the global break], however exactly what is clear is I’m concerned.”

When the gamers went back to Madrid, Filipe Luis went through some tests which validated the seriousness of the 32-year-old’s injury.

“Filipe Luis went through radiological tests as quickly as he showed up in Madrid, which have actually validated that he suffered a fracture of the fibula of his left leg,” a declaration from the La Liga side read.

The level of the fracture, and the length of time Filipe Luis will be sidelined for, stays uncertain.
