Lionel Messi has been forced for with an arm injury during Barcelona’s clash with Sevilla.
Messi was substituted in the 17th minute after appearing land awkwardly on his right arm during a tussel for the ball with Sevilla midfielder Franco Vazquez.
After receiving lengthy treatment on the sideline, during which Messi appeared in pain, he was replaced by Ousmane Dembele.
Messi is likely to be a doubt for Barca’s Champions League clash with Inter Milan on Wednesday along with next weekend’s El Clasico with Real Madrid.
The incident occurred moments after the Argentine had curled in a textbook finish into the bottom corner after breaking free – which handed Barca a second goal.
