The Spain midfielder was taken off at half-time in the capital with a badly bruised left knee, but Barca said on Sunday morning there were "no other complications".

They revealed his withdrawal had been a precautionary measure.

A club statement said: "Tests carried out this morning confirmed that the player's recovery time will determine his availability for future games."

The draw at the Vicente Calderon meant Barca and Atletico remained level on points at the top of the Primera Division.
