LA LIGA: Bad News For Barca Despite Their Comeback Win Over Real Betis

Barcelona continue their unbeaten run as they came back from a goal down to beat Real Betis 3-2 at the Benito Villamarin on Sunday night.

Lionel Messi came on in the second half after starting from bench to score the equaliser with Borja Iglesias giving the home side the lead in the first half.

The Catalans went on to secure all three points with Trincao's 87th-minute strike to cap off a good evening for Ronald Koeman.

Despite the win over Manuel Pellegrini side, Barcelona were dealt with a huge blow as Ronald Araujo got injured in the game.

The Uruguayan defender started the game but was unable to finish after being substituted for being injured.

Barca released an official statement on their official Twitter page about the young defender's injury.

"INJURY UPDATE | @RonaldAraujo939 has a left ankle sprain. He will undergo further testing tomorrow to find out the exact extent of the injury," the club stated.
