Koke didn’t start Atlético Madrid’s Supercopa semi-final against Barcelona in Saudi Arabia. He came on and scored with his first touch just 21 seconds into the second half, but he could not finish the match.

He was subbed off 26 minutes after coming on, as Diego Simeone’s decision to rush him back into the fold didn’t work out. The club captain missed the past two games in LaLiga following his muscular issue and he seems to have re-aggravated the injury in Jeddah.

Atlético don’t play again until Jan. 18 against Eibar. Further updates to follow.
