However, the big news from the opening 45 minutes was Aguero’s strange exit just before the half time whistle.
Concerning scenes near the end of the first half at Camp Nou, but thankfully Sergio Aguero was able to leave the pitch without the need for a stretcher 🙏
Let's hope he's back in action soon 🤞 pic.twitter.com/1T4gSGHvuV

Aguero eventually walked off the pitch but Barcelona fans will be concerned by his condition given the lack of contact with an opponent before his exit.
Barjuan bought on Philippe Coutinho as his replacement as the former La Blaugrana looks to make a winning start to temporary life in charge of the first team.
