The Argentine, who scored the second Barça goal and gave assistance to Coutinho in the first, injured his right elbow by chance in the 17th minute when he poorly supported his arm after falling in a dispute with the Sevilla Franco Vázquez.

The Barca captain's pain gestures were evident from the first moment and after being stretched a few minutes on the floor, he went to the bandage where a bandage was applied to his injured arm with the intention of returning to play. Finally, Ernesto Valverde had Ousmae Dembelé replace him in minute 26.

Barcelona doctors bandaged his elbow before the Argentine, who could not move his arm, retired to the locker room. We will have to see the extent of the injury to know if I can play against Inter Milan on Wednesday and next Sunday against Real Madrid.
