Barcelona star Lionel Messi was forced to leave the field injured as Barcelona drew 1-1 with Atlético Madrid at Camp Nou on Wednesday.

After taking a kick to the back to heel in the 60th minute, the Argentinian pulled up and waved for play to stop for a foul. 

Messi's early season injury worries

Luis Enrique didn't want to take any risks, with Messi only just recovering from a muscle injury, and swiftly replaced the Barça number '10' with Arda Turan.

The striker left the field limping accompanied by a team doctor, and it remains to be seen whether any damage has been caused or if his substitution was just a precautionary measure.
