Churches He still does not train with the rest of his teammates three days after the clash that he will face Real
Betis with the Athletic
Madrid next Sunday at Benito Villamarín, so the Galician striker is the great doubt in Manuel Pellegrini’s squad, who will not be able to count for this clash with Andrés Guarded, Víctor Ruiz, Dani Martín and Víctor Camarasa.
Borja Iglesias is not ruled out for the game against Atlético, but he has been training all week apart from his teammates, which reduces his options of starting on Sunday, although his response in the last training sessions of the week will be key to assessing his availability. The Galician, who suffered a hip injury on Sunday in Elche when he hit the post, is already the team’s top scorer after scoring eight goals in the last nine games and is currently the main offensive benchmark for Real Betis.
Those who have trained normally this Thursday along with the rest have been Canales, Mandi and Emerson, who on Wednesday did it in the gym – where Borja Iglesias and Guarded continue to exercise – following a specific plan.
