Atlético Madrid striker Luis Suarez injured, Suarez suffered a muscle injury in
his left leg,” the club’s statement reads.
“Our player, after feeling some discomfort in training this Wednesday, underwent
tests with the club’s medical services that confirmed
the injury of the Uruguayan international, and he is currently undergoing tests to
reveal the extent of the damage.
Suarez is already suspended for this weekend’s league clash against Real Betis,
while Diario Sport claims that he could be sidelined for up to three weeks with this layoff.
That would mean he is potentially a doubt for the upcoming league games against
Eibar and Huesca respectively – two sides currently in the drop zone.
The Uruguayan has been a key player for Atleti this season after his shock transfer
from Barcelona last summer and he has helped fire them to the top of the league table,
even if both his and the side’s form has dropped off in recent weeks.
The 34-year-old has hit 19 goals in La Liga this season but has just one strike in
his last four matches and three in his last 11.
