Jérémy Mathieu was substituted at the Vicente Calderón after a nasty clash with Ángel Correa. The outcome is that the French defender has sprained external ligaments in his left ankle, although further rests will be required to determine the full extent of the injury and the recovery time

The 33 year old started the 2-1 win at Atlético Madrid in the left back position, his tenth Liga start of the season and twelfth in all competitions. It’s not been a kind campaign for him fitness-wise, because he was also side-lined for two months at the start of the season.
