Barcelona's first half against Atlético Madrid was close to perfection, but their second half started with terrible news.

Superstar forward Lionel Messi and midfielder Sergio Busquets were forced to leave the La Liga match against the Colchoneros on Wednesday after suffering injuries. Busquets left after just five minutes in the final period with what appeared to be a lower leg problem, while Messi felt a problem in his groin and also had to leave just a few seconds later. Sergio was replaced by André Gomes, while Arda Turan came in place of Messi.

There are no official updates from the club as of now, but we hope to provide you with them as soon as more information becomes available. But we know one thing: THIS SUCKS.
