Atletico face anxious wait over duo

Atletico Madrid will hope that Diego Costa and Arda Turan will return to be fit for the Champions League final against Real Madrid next weekend after both picked up injuries in the 1-1 draw at Barcelona that sealed the La Liga title on Saturday night.

Amid the celebrations only a few details emerged of the injuries, suffered early in the first half by both, leaving them doubtful for the showpiece final.

The club said Costa -- who was seen in tears on the bench in the second half -- had suffered a recurrence of his hamstring injury, while Turan had a pelvic injury. There was no word on their status for next week at this stage.

"It was a very hard game," Atletico's on-loan goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois told Sky Sports 1. "I think not a lot of people gave us a chance after last week's draw because Barca just had to win at home and they were really ready for this game.

"After 20 minutes we lost two important players and we went 1-0 behind, but in the second half you saw how we came back. We had to suffer but we suffered and we won.

"This is the story of Atletico Madrid. For so many years Madrid and Barca had all the money, they buy a lot of good players but we had to find another way. We had good players, not the best but we worked harder, suffered in training and had good tactics. You can achieve good things.

"The supporters of Atletico have had difficult years but now they can have some great years and hopefully next week we can give them another trophy."
