Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann did not suffer a broken foot while on international duty with France, the La Liga club have confirmed.

Griezmann was taken off during France's 2-1 win over Sweden on 11 November after suffering a blow to his left foot, and subsequently withdrew from the squad for the friendly against Ivory Coast on 15 November.

Medical tests conducted on 12 November revealed that the 25-year-old had suffered heavy bruising.

Atletico face La Liga leaders Real Madrid in a highly-anticipated clash at the Vicente Calderon on 19 November.

"In the X-ray that was completed, an injury to the bone was ruled out, and the diagnosis indicates that he has suffered a trauma with a hematoma on the left foot," an Atletico statement said.

"Both the medical services of the France national team and those of Atletico Madrid have agreed for the Frenchman to return to Madrid, where he has already been placed in the hands of our physiotherapists.

"During the day on Monday, he will continue with a new course of treatment and his recovery will continue to be assessed."

With six goals in 10 matches, Griezmann is Atletico's top scorer in La Liga this season.

The 25-year-old told Spanish daily Marca that he would do everything possible to return to fitness in time for the Madrid derby.

"It's not too serious, but I have to work morning, afternoon and night to be ready," he said.

Meanwhile, Real have injury concerns of their own, with Sergio Ramos, Karim Benzema, Pepe, Casemiro and Mateo Kovacic all heading into the Atletico clash with physical problems.

Zinedine Zidane's side have a two-point lead over second-placed Barcelona and a six-point advantage over city rivals Atletico.

Real are the only unbeaten team left in the Spanish top division, but they have lost four of their last six league meetings with Atletico.
