Augusto medical report: partial tear of interior ligament
Rodolfo Molina DIARIO AS

After being stretchered off at the Camp Nou yesterday Augusto Fernández underwent medical tests this morning. The ex Celta midfielder has been diagnosed with a partial tear in the interior ligament of his left knee. Going down clutching his knee after tussling with Arda Turan to win possession he immediately signalled to the bench to come off and was replaced with Thomas with 26 minutes left of the second half still to play.

While there was some relief in the Atleti camp that the Argentinean hadn’t suffered a complete tear, the bad news is that he will need two months to recover.
