Barcelona defender Inigo Martinez picked up yet another injury against Barbastro in the Copa del Rey on Sunday.

The center-back is only just back from a hamstring injury and started the cup game but asked to come off in the closing stages after sutaining another issue.

Sergi Roberto came on to replace Martinez who looked pretty dismayed as he went off and took his place on the bench.

Martinez has struggled with injuries since joining Barcelona in the summer on a free transfer from Athletic Club.

The Spain international had only managed 10 appearances in all competitions before tonight’s match and may be set for more time on the sidelines.

It remains to be seen how long Martinez will be out for but he looks a doubt for the Spanish Super Cup, along with Joao Cancelo who also has a knock.

Barca start their campaign on Thursday with a semi-final tie against Osasuna
