Costa Missed The Chance To Meet Bayern

MADRID: Diego Costa will miss the opening match of Atletico Madrid in the Champions League against Bayern Munich after the La Liga club confirmed yesterday that the striker suffered a thigh injury.

In a statement, Atletico said the test “confirmed he had a muscle injury to his left thigh”, meaning he would not play in the match early Thursday morning in Bavaria.

Atletico did not specify how long the 32-year-old would return after being released when the squad won 2-0 against Celta Vigo last Saturday.

The Brazilian-born Spanish international, who is paired with newly bought player Luis Suarez in the Atletico attack, is expected to fill Joao Felix for a meeting at the Alianz Arena.
