Barcelona confirmed on Sunday that full-back Nelson Semedo was taken to hospital for tests after suffering a head injury against Eibar.

The defender started the game at Ipurua but was replaced at half-time by Moussa Wague after picking up a knock.

The club later issued an update saying that Semedo will stay overnight in the hospital and hopefully return to Barcelona on Monday.

It remains to be seen how serious Semedo’s injury is and whether he may now miss Saturday’s Copa del Rey final against Valencia.
