Atlético’s official website confirmed on Tuesday that Arda Turan, Tiago and Sílvio will all be unavailable for our upcoming match against Besiktas.
The trio join Diego and team captain Antonio López on the Rojiblanco injury list.
Tiago, who traveled to Portugal on Tuesday to await the birth of his child, is suffering from a hamstring injury that will keep him from playing against the Black Eagles.
Arda, who could not take part in last weekend’s match at Sevilla, continues his recovery from a muscle strain sustained in his nation’s friendly against Slovakia last week. The 25-year-old will not be facing his countryman on Thursday.
Sìlvio’s injury-plagued season continues as the full back sprained his left knee in training, sidelining him for our Europa League round of 16 first leg encounter.
