Barcelona's Neymar Injured Against Getafe in Copa Del Rey

BR-UK StaffAnalyst IIIJanuary 16, 2014

Barcelona and Brazil superstar Neymar had to exit Barcelona's Copa del Rey clash at Getafe after suffering what appeared to be an ankle injury. 

Neymar was sprinting to try and get a cross in, but as he turned to fire, his right ankle bent back awkwardly as he crashed to the ground. 

He had to be carried off and was substituted for Alexis Sanchez. 

Neymar, who has been receiving treatment after twisting his ankle, is about to come off for Alexis Sanchez.

 Neymar helped off... Boot and sock off, can't put any weight on leg.
