Costa doubtful for Barca clash

01 April 2014, 13:06

Madrid - Atletico Madrid's in-form striker Diego Costa is doubtful for Tuesday's Champions League quarterfinal first leg because of bruising in his left knee, Atletico coach Diego Simeone said late on Monday.

"Having seen him in training, I think it is going to be difficult for him to make it," Simeone said.

"However, we will wait because there is still a long while to go before the game."

Costa, 25, has been in formidable form for Atletico this season in the Champions League and the Spanish Liga. He suffered the injury in Saturday's 2-1 win at Athletic Bilbao - in which he scored his team's first goal - a result which left Atletico one point ahead of Barcelona atop La Liga.

Atletico will be without midfielder Raul Garcia on Tuesday because of suspension.
