In Pictures: Jesus Navas stomps on Lionel Messi’s finger, draws blood

FC Barcelona’s official website produced a picture gallery on Sunday titled ‘the other side of FC Barcelona v Sevilla.’

Barcelona rallied from a goal down on Saturday night against the Andalusians as David Villa and Lionel Messi both got on the scoresheet as the Catalans secured a comeback win to strengthen their position at the top of the table.

Barcelona’s win, however, was slightly painful for their star player.

During the match Lionel Messi’s little finger got mangled after Sevilla’s Jesus Navas stomped his pinkie in a challenge.

Barca’s in-house photographer Miguel Ruiz managed to capture the moment in a series of snaps, and the pictures can be seen below.
