Aguero came off in Saturday’s home draw against Alaves and was taken to hospital with chest pains; the 33-year-old Barcelona striker will be unavailable for the next three months; Raheem Sterling sent message of support to his former Man City team-mate

The 33-year-old striker was withdrawn before half-time after receiving treatment for several minutes during the La Liga game at the Nou Camp, and underwent cardiac tests at hospital as a precautionary measure after leaving the ground in an ambulance.

Barcelona caretaker coach Barjuan said Aguero was “calm” after speaking to the player, who remains in hospital.

“I talked to him and he’s calm. He’s confined to his room but considering the situation he’s calm,” Barjuan said on Monday.

Barca are third in the standings with three points from three games, a point behind Benfica and six adrift of group leaders Bayern Munich after being thrashed 3-0 by both teams.

They got up and running halfway through the group stage with a 1-0 home win over the Ukrainian side last month and must now claim another three points in the return match in Kiev as they bid to finish in the top two and reach the knockout rounds.

“Barcelona have to win always. But we all know the importance of tomorrow’s game,” Barjuan told a pre-match news conference on Monday.
