Atletico Madrid's Sime Vrsaljko avoids surgery after knee injury scare

Atletico Madrid defender Sime Vrsaljko is set for a lengthy stint on the sidelines after suffering damage to his anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee on the weekend.

The Croatian worldwide defender was taken off in the first minute of Atletico's 3-1 win over Sevilla and it was reported he had torn his cruciate ligaments, which would have ended his season and ruled him out for seven months.

Vrsaljko is expected to be out for around four weeks, missing Atletico's league games with Malaga, Real Sociedad, Real Madrid and Osasuna and their Champions League quarter-final tie with Leicester City.

"The Croatia worldwide defender will begin treatment to recover from his left knee injury".

Croatia will also miss Vrsaljko, who has become their first-choice right-back following the retirement of Darijo Srna, with Ante Cacic's men due to face Ukraine in a World Cup qualifier on Friday.

Vrsaljko was replaced by Juanfran and Atletico went on to win the match thanks to goals from Diego Godin, Antoine Griezmann and Koke, narrowing the gap to third-placed Sevilla to two points thanks to their victory.
