Suárez may be left without a dance partner: Diego Costa is injured
Diego Costa and Luis Suárez, thick as thieves. The dynamic duo in the league is left lame. The Spanish-Brazilian was injured in the game against Celta Vigo at Balaídos. He suffered a pull after a long sprint and Cholo Simeone had to replace him.
Joao Félix entered the field and, in case it is confirmed that his partner has serious problems, he will have to take his place in the upcoming weeks. The young man shows a lot of quality every time he enters the field and, if Costa has bad news, it could be his chance.
As for what he did in Costa Verde, although he did not find the goal prize, he was active and generous. There was a play in which he controlled from the chest a high pass to the heart of the area and sought Suárez with a pass that the Uruguayan could not control.
This is a tough loss for Cholo Simeone, whose style of play requires men with a bite up front to put pressure on defenders.
