Madrid, Oct 6: Atletico Madrid’s Spanish forward Diego Costa sustained a left thigh injury during the Rojiblancos’ UEFA Champions League 3-1 win over Club Brugge, the La Liga club has announced.
The Brazilian-born Costa underwent medical scans, after being forced to leave the field shortly after the one-hour mark during Wednesday’s game, reports Efe news.
“The report offered by our medical staff indicates that he suffered an injury in the ischiosural musculature of the left thigh,” the club said in a statement on Friday.
