This could have some implications.

Paulo Dybala, who was the shining star of the Barcelona-Juventus clash, has left the field injured in his team’s clash with Pescara. In the 54th minute, the Argentine ace had to leave after a rough challenge from Sulley Muntari as the Turin club already led 2-0.

Dybala felt pain in his right ankle and was substituted off. However, it is not expected that he will miss the return leg at the Camp Nou, since the injury was minor.

On the other hand, it could limit him somewhat. Are we in for a repeat of the famous 6-1 comeback victory against Paris Saint-Germain? Angel Di Maria, another Argentine player, ran the show in the first leg but was limited in the second leg due to an injury.

No way... right?
