Neymar had to be helped off the field by two members of the Barcelona medical staff after falling awkwardly just 22 minutes into the Catalans' Copa del Rey, last 16 second-leg match at Getafe.

The Brazilian forward collapsed to the ground in pain after appearing to twist his knee as he tried to attempt a cross on the left side of the penalty box.

Alexis Sanchez replaced the 21-year-old, who had been starting a match for the first time in four games due to suspension and illness.
