Atletico striker Diego Costa in danger of missing Arsenal tie

Samedi, 14 Avr, 2018

Arsenal were handed the tough task of overcoming Atletico Madrid to reach the Europa League final but the news was tempered by the possibility that Diego Costa could miss the first leg of the semi-final because of an injury to his left thigh.

Oblak was in the thick of the action, producing a world-class save to stop Sebastian Coates and he denied Bryan Ruiz twice, though he was at fault for Fredy Montero's winner.

Atletico says the injury was diagnosed after exams on Friday, a day after Costa got injured in the second leg of the Europa League quarterfinals at Sporting Lisbon.

Costa, who has three goals in six games against the north London side, rarely plays 90 minutes without sparking outrage and his rivalry with Arsenal has several memorable episodes.

However, Atlético midfielder Koke was full of praise for the Slovenia international, who has been linked with Liverpool and Paris Saint-Germain previously. Most recently, Rob Holding called him a 'nutter' in last season's FA Cup final against the Blues.

If not, it all makes for an absolutely mouth-watering clash, although Gunners mouths are more likely to be frothing with fury.

The return match is May 3 in Madrid.

Sporting still offered glimpses of danger too and Montero might have done better when the ball dropped kindly in the middle of the area, but he could only drill straight into the grateful arms of Oblak.
