Atletico Madrid got off to a strong start in their LaLiga 2019-20 campaign with some impressive displays at the start of the Spanish league. However, they missed the chance to go top of the LaLiga table ahead of rivals - Real Madrid and Barcelona - as Los Rojiblancos played out a 0-0 draw against Real Valladolid away from home. Argentinian coach Diego Simeone will hope that his players return a rejuvenated bunch as the Atletico stars head for the international break to represent their respective countries. Here’s a list of Atletico Madrid players on international duty this weekend.
LaLiga veteran Saul Niguez is the sole Spanish player from Atletico Madrid squad to be included in La Roja's squad for their Euro 2020 qualifiers against Norway and Sweden. Robert Moreno is sure to give the left-footed midfielder enough game time during the current international break.
Atletico Madrid newboy Renan Lodi made his debut from the bench for Brazil as the Selecao played out a 1-1 draw against Senegal yesterday. The left-back will push to start in the next game against Nigeria this week.
Angel Correa featured in the starting line-up for La Albiceleste as they played out a 2-2 draw against 2014 FIFA World Cup champions - Germany. The forward, who was rumoured to be on the move to AC Milan in the summer transfer window, will push for a start in the next match against Ecuador on October 13, 2019.
Atletico's new golden boy - Joao Felix - was called up to play for the senior Portugal team in their upcoming UEFA Euro 2020 qualifying games during the international break. Cristiano Ronaldo and Co. play Luxembourg in their first qualifier followed by a match against current table-toppers - Ukraine.
