Costa suffers hamstring strain

2 April 2014 17:17

Diego Costa has been diagnosed with a grade one hamstring strain, Atletico Madrid have confirmed.

The striker was withdrawn 30 minutes into Tuesday's 1-1 draw at Barcelona in the first leg of Atleti's UEFA Champions League quarter-final.

Costa had been a doubt for the encounter with a knee problem, but it was a hamstring issue that brought his evening to a premature end, although he has avoided a tear.

The club are yet to put a timescale on the 25-year-old's recovery, but there is considerable doubt over his involvement in the second leg in Madrid next Wednesday.

The Spain forward has played a huge part in Atleti's rise to the top of La Liga this season, scoring 25 goals in 30 appearances.

Diego Simeone's men host Villarreal in the league on Saturday, but could also be without Arda Turan, who is suffering from a groin injury.
