Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone has allayed fears over the severity of the injury suffered by striker Diego Costa in Sunday's 2-0 derby victory at Getafe, which moved Los Rojiblancos a step closer to the Primera Division title.

The 25-year-old Brazil-born forward suffered a worrying-looking injury after colliding with a post in scoring his side's second goal and left the field on a stretcher, but Atletico moved quickly to play down concerns it could be anything serious.
