Costa trains but remains doubtful

AS report that Atletico Madrid striker Diego Costa trained with the rest of the Rojiblancos squad this morning.

A session took place at the club’s Vicente Calderon stadium, with the Spanish international said to have been running normally with the rest of the group during the period of time that the session was open to the Press.

The 25-year-old, who played the full 90 minutes of the Rojiblancos’ 2-0 loss at Levante last week, remains a major doubt however for tomorrow’s match against Malaga with a thigh injury.

Indeed, if reports are to be believed, he also faces a battle to be fit in time for next week’s potential La Liga title decider against Barcelona next week.
