Barcelona have been hit with a major setback as starting right-back Nelson Semedo has been stretchered off for Portugal in their Euros qualifier vs Serbia.

In the 65th minute of Portugal’s European Championships qualifier against Serbia this evening, Barcelona star Nelson Semedo was stretchered off with an apparent knee injury.

Considering that Semedo couldn’t leave the field himself, this suggests that the injury could be quite serious.

Ernesto Valverde now has a problem on his hands. With Semedo sidelined, Barcelona academy graduate and Spain international Sergi Roberto will be expected to start for the side.
