Barcelona have been hit with another injury blow as Nelson Semedo was stretchered off during Portugal’s Euro 2020 clash with Serbia on Tuesday.

The right-back started the game but was forced off after 65 minutes with what looked like a serious injury.

It remains to be seen how serious the injury is but it comes at a bad time with the club currently without Luis Suarez, Lionel Messi and Ousmane Dembele due to injury.

Semedo has cemented his place as the club’s first choice right-back this season and started all three La Liga games so far.

If he is set for a spell on the sidelines then Moussa Wague may be handed a chance to impress in the first team, or Ernesto Valverde could opt to use Sergi Roberto back in defence.
