Atletico Madrid’s Diego Costa & Tiago doubtful for Malaga game
Atletico Madrid have been dealt a blow with the news that Diego Costa and Tiago may miss Saturday’s encounter with Malaga through injury.
Diego Costa sprained his ankle in training on Wednesday and will face a race against the clock to be fit for the club’s game this weekend.
Tiago is also unlikely to feature after his picked up a back injury in last week’s 1-0 victory over Deportivo.
“I’m still not good. Let’s see how I am tomorrow because today has been very difficult, although a back injury can get better in only a day. We have to wait another day to see if playing [against Malaga] is possible,” the player told the club’s official website.
Some good news for the club is that Koke has recovered from a sprained left knee and is likely to be in the matchday squad on Saturday.
Atletico are currently sixth in La Liga, chasing a European spot with only four games to go.
