OFFICIAL: Luis Suarez suffers a muscle injury in his left leg
Atletico’s title hopes having taken a dash in recent weeks, with poor results allowing Barcelona to narrow the gap at the top to just one point, so an injury to their top goalscorer would come as another blow.
The Uruguayan will miss the Real Betis match due to suspension, but further tests will now reveal whether he will be absent for any further games.
Suarez has been injury free since joining Atletico last summer from Barcelona.
Only a positive COVID test saw him miss the start of the season, and Diego Simeone will now be sweating over the fitness of his main striker.
