Costa, Godin, Koke sit out Atletico training ahead of Leganes test

Atletico Madrid have concerns over the fitness of Diego Costa, Diego Godin and Koke after the trio sat out training with the first team on Thursday.

The club confirmed that Koke took part in a separate session at the Wanda Sports City after feeling discomfort in his thigh while Costa and Godin also trained alone due to muscular problems.

Atletico will hope they can return for their La Liga game away to Leganes on Saturday but Diego Simeone may be reluctant to take any risks, with a crunch Champions League match at home to Borussia Dortmund coming up on Tuesday.

After losing 4-0 in Dortmund last week, Atleti sit second in Group A, three points behind the German team at the halfway stage.

All three were rested for Atletico´s 1-0 win over Sant Andreu in the Copa del Rey on Wednesday, as Gelson Martins gave the visitors a slender advantage heading into the second leg.
