Riqui Puig was stretchered off in stoppage time of Barcelona B’s 1-1 draw against Llagostera on Saturday.

The team went behind in the match but equalised through Abel Ruiz’s spot-kick after Riqui Puig won a penalty.

However, Puig did not finish the game after being stretchered off following a heavy challenge.

Here’s a look at the incident:

Barcelona B offered a brief update after the match which suggests the injury is not serious, although they say he is set to have additional tests.

The injury comes a week after Puig was given some pretty harsh treatment in Barca B’s 3-0 win over Orihuela.

Manager Fran Garcia Pimienta complained after the match about the “brutal challenges” made on his midfielder in an attempt to stop him.

Let’s hope he’s OK.
