Mandzukic blow for Atleti

19 March 2015, 11:22

Madrid - Atletico Madrid were left counting the cost of their progression to the quarter-finals of the Champions League on penalties over Bayer Leverkusen on Tuesday with three key players set for a spell on the sidelines.

Goalkeeper Miguel Angel Moya had to be replaced after just 23 minutes with a hamstring injury in his left leg that is expected to keep him out for a few weeks.

Mario Mandzukic was also withdrawn after suffering a twisted ankle, whilst Raul Garcia has had his left arm put in a brace due to an elbow injury.

The club confirmed all three injuries without stating how long each player is expected to be out for on Wednesday, however all three are unlikely to feature at home to Getafe on Saturday.

Atletico sit fourth in La Liga, nine points behind leaders Barcelona, with 11 games remaining.
