Luis Suarez teamed up with Diego Costa for the first time and scored as Atletico Madrid beat struggling Celta Vigo 2-0 in La Liga on Saturday

But the Suarez-Costa combination ended early as Costa was forced to injure himself in the second half

Sitting in the stands, Costa was seen with his face in his hands and he was also limping after the final whistle

He is now likely to miss Atletico’s Champions League opener away at Bayern Munich on Wednesday

For Atletico this was a much needed victory after back-to-back scoreless draws dampened enthusiasm following their 6-1 win over Granada

Suarez made his debut that day, coming off the bench to score twice when Granada were already down, but his early strike shaped this game against Celta, until Yannick Carrasco led in a second in added time

Diego Simeone had separated Suarez and Costa using one to substitute for the other in each of Atletico’s opening three matches, but he paired them early on at Balaidos, with Joao Felix on the bench

Costa predicted last month that they would be a handful together, saying « it will be good, one bites, the other kicks »

There were flickers of chemistry, Suarez missed a chance for a second from Costa’s collar which made him feel pain in his leg

But Felix also impressed when he came in and will provide a more creative, albeit less combative, sheet for Suarez in Costa’s absence

After replacing the injured Costa after half-time, it was Felix’s curling shot that hit the bar, allowing Carrasco to nod his head in the rebound

Suarez had previously put Atletico in the lead in the sixth minute, after 20-year-old left-back Manu Sanchez chose him with a smart setback

There was also a debut for Lucas Torreira, the Uruguayan on loan from Arsenal, who was energetic and tidy in the central midfielder, despite late cramps

Atletico move up to fourth, two points behind Real Madrid and one ahead of Barcelona Celta, meanwhile, have managed just one win in their first six games and sit 13th
