The Blaugrana captain was involved in a “50-50” ball with a Villarreal player, Manu Trigueros around 64th minute which left him in serious pain for some minutes.

Lionel Messi was lucky to come away not seriously injured after being on the end of a rather nasty,harsh challenge during Barcelona's 2-1 win over Villarreal.

Manu Trigueros was shown a straight red card for jumping into a tackle against Messi, raking his studs up the Argentine's legs in the process.

Messi managed to get up from the challenge after appearing to be hurt immediately afterwards. He ended up playing full 90 minutes.

Griezmann’s brace helped Barcelona take all 3 points.

They now sit on the 3rd position with one match in hand.

Koeman expressed his satisfaction with his players after responding immediately after a goal from Chukweze.
