Diego Simeone will head to Bilbao on Sunday with virtually a fully fit squad to choose from
Atletico Madrid will be without just two players for their match against Athletic Club at San Mames this weekend.
Sime Vrsaljko is one of them - he's still recovering from an arthroscopy he had on his knee in May.
Joao Felix is the other player to miss out because, while he's recovered from a knee injury, he will be suspended for the game.
Angel Correa was a doubt to face Athletic, but he's overcome a muscle injury and trained with the rest of his teammates on Thursday.
Of the other players who had been experiencing fitness problems, Felipe and Vitolo will be fit to play on Sunday.
The squad's condition is testament to Oscar 'Profe' Ortega - Atletico's fitness coach who has whipped his players into shape over the last few weeks.
The extended break in the season has also allowed the likes of Diego Costa to regain their fitness, Renan Lodi to have a rest and Yannick Carrasco to settle in more.
