  • Valverde He hablado con Vidal

Lionel Messi picked up a potentially-serious injury to his right arm in Barcelona's 4-2 win over Sevilla at Camp Nou on Saturday night.

However, he later left to have further tests done, a statement from Barcelona later confirming a fracture of his radius bone.

Ernesto Valverde didn't count on Arturo Vidal before his social media outbursts in light of his lack of game time at Barcelona and he doesn't now either. "Sooner or later we will come out of this", he said.

The five-time Ballon d'Or victor fell awkwardly on his right arm in the 17th minute of the La Liga clash with Sevilla at the Camp Nou on Saturday and was immediately in visible pain.

The Portuguese was still leading the way at Manchester United at that time, while Messi was laid low by a torn thigh muscle once more in the week leading up to the blockbuster match. "But we've played without him in the past". He tried to continue the match, but was in too much pain, and eventually replaced with Ousmane Dembélé.

"We shouldn't let Messi's injury affect us", defender Gerard Pique said.

FC Barcelona star Lionel Messi was injured early in the league game against Sevilla at the Camp Nou and the decision was made that he should be substituted.

Pablo Sarabia pulled one back for Sevilla, but Ivan Rakitic restored the hosts' three-goal advantage.

"There's a big difference between having him on the pitch or not but we have a strong enough team to win games whether he plays or not".

Barcelona face Inter Milan in the Champions League on Wednesday, before the first Clasico of the season against Real Madrid next Sunday.

Atletico Madrid are two points ahead after they missed the chance to go top by drawing 1-1 away to Villarreal.

Atletico struggled against Villarreal and goalkeeper Jan Oblak pulled off hard saves to keep Diego Simeone's team from defeat.
