A SOBBING Luis Suarez was forced off with injury just 13 minutes into Atletico Madrid’s crucial Champions League clash with Porto.
The 34-year-old striker was replaced by Matheus Cunha at Estadio do Dragao.
Suarez appeared to aggravate an existing knock and was reduced to tears on the bench for the must-win encounter.
Both teams stand a chance of qualifying for the knock-out stages as runners-up in Group B.
Porto currently occupy the crucial second spot, with Atletico just one point behind them.
AC Milan are also in with a shout for qualification as they sit level on points with Atletico.
They take on Liverpool in Tuesday night's other clash in the extraordinarily tight group.
Atletico were Champions League runners-up in 2014 and 2016.
