Atletico Madrid star Joao Felix will not be included in the squad to face Liverpool.

The player missed training on Monday.

Felix sustained a muscle injury during Atletico’s 0-0 draw at home to Leganes on January 26.

According to Goal, Felix is close to making a full recovery from injury, but he has been struck down with pharyngotonsillitis, which is why he will not be involved at Wanda Metropolitano.

European Cup holders Liverpool will travel to Atletico Madrid for their first leg of their last-16 Champions League tie on Tuesday night.
