Atletico Madrid striker Diego Costa has been ruled out for 10 days after picking up a hamstring injury in Saturday’s draw with Girona.

The Spain international is set to miss the midweek Copa del Rey return match against Sevilla while also sitting out the forthcoming La Liga match against Las Palmas.

Tests were carried out on the 29-year-old after he was forced off during the clash with Girona, having scored three goals in five appearances for Atleti.

Costa has already sat out one match since his debut after he was dismissed in the 2-0 win at home to Getafe earlier this month.
