Atletico Madrid confirm Costa suffered hamstring injury


Atletico Madrid have confirmed striker Diego Costa suffered a hamstring injury in Thursday’s Europa League clash with Sporting CP.

The Spain international was withdrawn in the second half of the 1-0 quarter-final second-leg loss to the Portuguese side in Lisbon and was sent for further tests.

“After undergoing medical exams this Friday, April 13, he has been diagnosed with a hamstring injury to his left leg,” Atleti confirmed in a statement via their official website.

Atleti will hope to have the 29-year-old available for the first leg of their Europa League semi-final tie against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium on April 26.
