Costa and Arda miss training

Neither Diego Costa nor Arda Turan took part in Atletico Madrid training today as they prepared for their Champions League meeting with Barcelona.

The duo both missed Saturday’s 1-0 League win over Villareal through injury and it remains to be seen whether they will be fit for Wednesday’s match.

Costa is still recovering from a thigh injury and is said to be the more doubtful of the two but Arda, who today underwent physiotherapy for a hernia problem, is expected to be available.

Raul Garcia will definitely return after serving a European suspension, as will club captain Gabi who missed the Villareal match for the same reason.
