The Brazilian had been out for a few days after turning his right ankle, and it had been feared he suffered ligament damage.

But he has been cleared more quickly than anticipated, and will participate in light training with a view to a full return after the international break.

Miranda, 28, joined Atletico from Sao Paulo two years ago.

He has gone on to make 40 Liga appearances, scoring three goals, and earning a return to the Brazilian national team set-up after three years away.
