Barcelona right-back Nelson Semedo was forced off with injury at the end of the 6-1 win over Girona at Camp Nou on Saturday.

Ernesto Valverde restored Semedo to his starting line-up, with Sergi Roberto given a breather and starting on the bench.

The Barca boss was rewarded with a really strong performance from Semedo, until he pulled up late on with what looked like a hamstring problem.

Semedo couldn’t continue and hobbled off leaving Barca to finish the game with 10 men as Valverde had already used all three substitutes.

We’ll have to wait and see how serious the problem is, but hopefully Semedo will not be sidelined for too long.

Gerard Pique’s fitness is also of some concern. The defender played with a knee strapping and was replaced by Thomas Vermaelen in the second half after taking a knock.

Barcelona are back in action on Thursday as they head to struggling Las Palmas.
