Barcelona have offered updates on Sergio Aguero and Gerard Pique after both players were forced off in Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Alaves at the Camp Nou.

Aguero went off shortly before half-time after appearing to be suffering from breathing difficulties on the pitch. The striker has been taken to hospital for tests on his heart.

It’s obviously concerning news regarding Aguero so let’s wish him all the best and hope he makes a swift recovery.

Meanwhile, Pique went off in the second half and has a calf strain. He’ll undergo more tests to determine the severity of the injury but it looks likely he’ll miss Barca’s next game against Dynamo Kiev on Tuesday in the Champions League.

The news is obviously not good for interim coach Sergi Barjuan ahead of what is a pretty crucial fixture against Dynamo Kiev. It’s thought that Ansu Fati could be available for the game, while Ousmane Dembele may also be passed fit and included in the squad.
