Messi and Busquets pick up injuries against Almeria

Barcelona stars Lionel Messi and Sergio Busquets both walked away from the Blaugrana’s 1-2 win over Almeria with slight injuries, but neither player is expected to miss any game, but may be in doubt for their respective national teams over the coming international break.
Messi and Busquets Injuries
Messi, who struggled with a hamstring injury all of last season, was seen repeatedly from slow motions touching his thigh and massaging the muscle, but managed to play the entire 90 minutes.
Sergio Busquets on the other hand played the entire first half, but after taking a knock to his left leg, he was subbed off in the 65th minute and replaced by captain Xavi Hernandez.
Busquets was then seen massaging his thigh before speaking with club physician Ricard Pruna.
Both players are expected to undergo tests before being released for international duty, to determine the extent of their injuries and if they are able to join Argentina and Spain, respectively.
