Griezmann doubt for Betis clash with hamstring strain

Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann is a doubt for Sunday's LaLiga clash with Real Betis after picking up a hamstring strain against Chelsea in the Champions League.

The France international finished Tuesday's game in London feeling some discomfort, as Atletico left with a 1-1 draw which ultimately consigned them to a place in the Europa League as opposed to the Champions League's last 16.

Griezmann was examined upon Atletico's return to Madrid and they will now wait for those tests to determine the full extent of the issue.

As a result, he is thought to be a doubt for Sunday's trip to the Benito Villamarin, with Diego Simeone's men hoping to claim a third successive LaLiga win.

MEDICAL REPORT @AntoGriezmann finished the match in Stamford Bridge with some muscular discomfort in his right hamstring.
