What’s the story?
After having his face caved in by an “accidental” elbow from Marcelo (it looked accidental, but you can never be sure with these things, hence the quotes), Messi had to undergo emergency medical treatment on the field of play and had to play a part of the match with a tissue stuffed into his mouth. He of course went to score Barcelona’s first goal shortly afterwards before sealing the deal with what turned out to be the very last kick of the game.
The incident with Marcelo, though, continues to haunt him. As per reports in the Sun, he is now set to undergo further dental surgery to fix his teeth after it appears for the all the world like he lost a tooth.
