Alarms sounded as Gerard Piqué went down, clutching his knee in Barcelona’s 6-1 win over Girona. Did he aggravate an injury he suffered against Espanyol, that kept him out of the game against Getafe?

Well, footage from El Dia Después gives us a clue. It seems the medical staff told Ernesto Valverde that Piqué’s knee discomfort was unrelated to the previous injury, and that there was no need to sub him off.

However, after seeing Piqué struggle with pain for a bit, Valverde decided to take the player out. But the defender seemed to disagree with the decision, and Valverde later said during the press conference that it was purely a precaution, and he could have stayed on.
