As it turns out, it's nothing serious

Two important members of the Barcelona squad were injured during the first leg of the Spanish Super Cup against Sevilla, and their medical reports came back on Monday. And as it turns out, they're not as bad as we might have feared.

Especially in the case of midfielder and captain Andrés Iniesta, who was forced to leave the game after clashing knees with a Sevilla defender. Knee injuries are always worrying, especially for a 32-year-old player, but Don Andrés did not have a serious problem:

Jérémy Mathieu had to leave because of a hamstring injury, and while his case is a little more serious, he will not be out for too long either:

Even though Iniesta's injury was a lot more concerning than Mathieu's, it's not nice to see a player injured. Andrés and Jérémy join goalkeeper Marc-André ter Stegen on the injury list right now, and here's hoping that list doesn't get bigger over the next few weeks.
