Atletico Madrid forward Alvaro Morata set to miss Barcelona clash


Atletico Madrid forward Alvaro Morata is almost certain to miss Saturday's top-of-the-table clash at La Liga leaders Barcelona due to a sprained ankle.


Morata, who is on loan from Chelsea, suffered the injury in Tuesday's 2-0 win at home to Girona.

Morata's injury creates a further selection headache for head coach Diego Simeone, who could also be without Diego Costa after he missed the win over Girona with a muscle injury, while France winger Thomas Lemar is not expected back from injury for another two weeks.
