Barcelona have suffered a major injury scare, as Lionel Messi was forced off with a problem in the first half of their La Liga clash with Sevilla.

The skipper had already scored to make it 2-0 when he landed awkwardly and appeared to injure his arm.

He had treatment on the pitch and then some strapping applied on the touchline before deciding he couldn’t continue. Ousmane Dembele came off the bench to replace him.

It’s a massive blow for Barcelona ahead of some really crucial games against Inter Milan and Real Madrid.

It’s not clear how serious the injury is but we’ll bring you all the latest updates as soon as possible.
