Barca sweat over Busquets injury

Barcelona face an anxious wait on the fitness of Sergio Busquets after he was forced off in Wednesday's Copa del Rey clash with Villarreal.

Barcelona midfielder Sergio Busquets was taken off with what appeared to be a nasty ankle injury in the first half of Wednesday's Copa del Rey clash with Villarreal.

Busquets left the pitch at El Madrigal on a stretcher after Tomas Pina caught the bottom of his right leg in the act of playing a pass that ultimately led to the hosts' equaliser.

Jeremy Mathieu was introduced in his place three minutes before the break, with Barca now facing an anxious wait on a diagnosis.
