Fernando Torres set to return against Bayer Leverkusen

Fernando Torres

After losing consciousness in an awful head clash El Nino is set to make a comeback in the Champions League second leg match against Bayer Leverkusen.

Atletico Madrid are the favourites to reach the quarter-final stage for the fourth year in a row, after a confident 4-2 victory in the first leg match against the German side.

Torres returned to full training on Monday and looks fit to play, according to Atletico Madrid Boss Diego Simeone.

“We imagine that for Wednesday he will be available,”, said the 46-year-old manager.

Whether the Spaniard will play or not depends on Kevin Gameiro’s fitness. The French striker missed Saturday’s 1-0 win at Granada due to abdominal injury.
