Diego Simeone’s side have only lost twice this season [Valencia and Real Madrid] and face leaders Barcelona at Camp Nou on Sunday with many predicting Falcao could upset Tito Vilanova’s side.
However, the former Porto star was forced to miss training on Thursday after sustaining a muscle injury on Wednesday and could now be ruled out of Sunday’s tie.
It is thought that club doctors will access the injury and hope that Falcao can return to light training on Friday but he will face a race against time to be fit.
