Atletico Madrid reportedly rule Diego Costa out of action until April 13.

Atletico Madrid striker Diego Costa will miss the second leg of the Champions League quarter-final against Barcelona next week with a hamstring injury.

The Spanish international entered last night's first leg, which ended in a 1-1 draw, carrying the knock and was forced to withdraw in the first period.

According to Sky Sports News, Atletico will be without the services of their 33-goal striker until at least April 13, which rules him out of the second leg at the Vicente Calderon.

Costa underwent tests in the Spanish capital earlier this afternoon, with the results revealing the extent of the damage.
