However, the Argentina forwards was then withdrawn early in the second half.
“He says he felt some thing, but hopefully he’s not injured,” explained Guardiola after Saturday’s match.
“He decided on not continuing. Hopefully it will not be considered a huge matter. We’ll have tomorrow, maybe the day after tomorrow”
