Diego Costa had to be taken off on a stretcher after scoring his 84th-minute goal in Atletico Madrid's 2-0 win over Getafe. Costa smashed his shin into the post as he scored, causing immediate concern that the team's top scorer had broken a bone. Those fears were eventually squashed and it was revealed that he only suffered a deep gash to his shin. It was still gross, though.

Here's video of the goal...
Earlier in the match, Costa missed a penalty kick, perhaps because a Getafe fan directly behind the goal was trying to distract him with his bare behind.
Meanwhile, Atletico assistant coach Mono Burgos watched all of this happen while wearing Google Glass on the bench. And that might have been the weirdest part of the match.
