Gerard Piqué had to be substituted in minute 56 of the match between Atlético de Madrid and Barcelona in the Wanda Metropolitano after minutes before he had a collision with Ángel Correa that flexed his right knee excessively and left the central Barcelona player lying on the ground.
The player was replaced by Sergiño Dest and had to be escorted to the bench area by medical services as he was unable to put his foot on the ground, although later was able to walk into the changing room tunnel on his own foot but with a visible limp .
