There is the concern of Atletico Madrid as Luis Suarez placeholder image had to quit Wednesday’s workout due to a muscle injury.
The Atletico title hope it has gained momentum in recent weeks, with poor results allowing Barcelona to narrow the gap at the top to just one point, so an injury to their top scorer would be another heavy blow.
The Uruguayan will miss the Real Betis match due to suspension, but further testing will now reveal whether he will be absent for other matches.
Suarez has not suffered any injuries since joining Atletico last summer Barcelona.
Only a positive COVID test saw him miss the start of the season, and Diego Simeone will now sweat on the fitness of his main attacker.
