Atletico Madrid talisman Diego Costa picked up a painful looking injury against Getafe in the club's La Liga fixture on Sunday night.
The Spanish international striker collided with a post, causing an impact injury with his shin, causing blood to pour from the wound.
Costa was hurt whilst sliding to convert his 26th La Liga goal of the season, and it could be a costly one.
The striker was stretchered off the pitch with minutes remaining of the fixture, in which he had earlier missed a penalty.
Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo reported that Costa was showing 'signs of severe pain and blood in the impact zone.'
