Antoine Griezmann He will not be able to play the decisive duel against Milan on November 24 at the Metropolitano, as he will have to serve his second game of sanction for his red card against Liverpool. The Atltico received this Wednesday the firm resolution from UEFA, so Diego Simeone he will not have the French striker in a game where he needs victory.

On October 19, Griezmann was sent off for a controversial dangerous gambling action on Roberto Firmino. The German referee Daniel Siebert left the rojiblancos inferior in minute 52 and shortly after Mohamed salah will score the winning goal for Liverpool (2-3). This expulsion prevented the world champion with France from playing the match of the fourth day at Anfield, where the Atltico also lost without palliative to the team led by Jrgen klopp.

The absence of Griezmann, author of three goals in the Champions League and two in the last two rojiblancas league outings (Levante and Valencia), represents a serious setback for Atltico’s plans, which must be played against Porto for second place in Group B.

The return of Savic

Likewise, El Cholo will not be able to count on for the next two days with Philip, sent off at Anfield for stopping Sadio man in a clear counterattack option. The absence of the Brazilian central will be occupied by Stefan savic, who finally returns to the Champions League after serving his four punishment games, due to his red card and subsequent protests during the second round of the last edition, at Stamford Bridge.

The disciplinary aspect seems like a real challenge for the colchoneros, who have three footballers (Luis Surez, Joao flix and Geoffrey kondogbia) on the brink of sanction. A yellow against Milan will make them miss the last match against Porto.

At the moment, with one point less than the team led by Srgio Conceio, a win against Milan will allow Atltico to depend on itself on the final matchday, where it visits its great rival in O Dragao (December 7).
