Atletico’s Tiago returns after healing broken arm

Atletico Madrid says midfielder Tiago Cardoso is fit to play

after recovering from a broken bone in his right arm.

The Portugal international has been sidelined since Feb. 27 when

he broke the ulna bone in his forearm during a Copa del Rey match

with Sevilla.

Tiago’s return means Atletico is at full strength for the final

stretch of the season.

Atletico is in third place in the Spanish league and will play

the Copa del Rey final against crosstown rival Real Madrid on May

17.
