Atletico, who won the game 1-0 at the Wanda Metropolitano, said the Uruguayan centre-back would undergo surgery in the coming days after having three of his upper teeth knocked out. They did not say how long he would be absent.

Godin was cleaned out by Neto as the two went up for a high ball following an Antoine Griezmann free-kick. He was taken off bleeding heavily after the incident, which happened early in the second half.

Angel Correa scored the goal for Atletico, who are second in La Liga, nine points behind leaders Barcelona.
