Atlético Madrid full-back Santiago Arias suffered a serious thigh injury during his side's Champions League exit to Juventus on Tuesday evening.
The Colombia international started in the right-back position for his side in last night's thriller in Turin, but was substituted off the field towards the end of the match. Soon after Arias left the field, Juventus talisman Cristiano Ronaldo scored his third goal of the night, condemning Los Colchoneros to a 3-0 loss (3-2 agg.) which eliminated them from the competition.
Breaking the news on their official website, Atléti confirmed that Arias had suffered a serious injury, and said: "

Meanwhile, Atléti ace Antoine Griezmann claimed his side "screwed up", following their dramatic exit to the Serie A serial winners. The 2018 World Cup winner said his side picked a poor occasion to not be at their best, and that it was unacceptable for the team to throw away a two goal advantage in the second leg.
