After almost seven months out injured (tore his acl), Maxi Rodriguez might make his return Sunday against Espanyol. Atletico Madrid boss Javier Aguirre put him through a full day of training this afternoon. He played with the starters today, fueling speculation that the Argentine international will get some minutes against the UEFA Cup finalists.
Atletico currently sit sixth in la Liga, 11 points behind leaders Barcelona. The capital side hold the last UEFA Cup spot, two points ahead of Recreativo Huelva, with Racing Santander a further point behind. There are six rounds left to play in Spain.
