COPA DEL REY | ATHLETIC BILBAO 1-2 ATLÉTICO MADRID
Filipe Luis picks up muscular injury during game in Bilbao
The full-back had to be replaced by Emiliano Insua after just 12 minutes, injuring the adductor muscle in his right leg.
Bad news for Atlético Madrid. Filipe Luis went down in the 12th minute of the Copa del Rey quarter final second leg match against Athletic Bilbao at San Mamés with an injury to the adductor muscle.
As soon as Diego Costa saw his team-mate in pain he made a gesture towards the Atleti dugout, calling for a substitute. The full-back was taken off the pitch on a stretcher and replaced by Emiliano Insua. He will undergo tests shortly before the club reveals the full extent of the injury and estimated time out, but it has been confirmed that the injury is ito the addutor of the player's right leg.
Without a doubt, Filipe Luis is a key player to Diego Simeone's side, and the left-back position is one in which Atleti do not have reliable cover.
