Groin injuries in La Liga are like buses: you wait for ages for one, and then several come and kick you in the gentleman's lunchbox at once.
The day after Gareth Bale had his frank 'n' beans aerially impeded by the boot of Granada defender Jeison Murillo, Malaga's Marcos Angeleri suffered a similar fate at the Nou Camp during his side's 3-0 loss to Barcelona.
The Argentinean defender was challenging for a ball in the air with Pedro when teammate Sergio Sánchez flew in and placed his studs right into his yam and zucchini. It's rare to see teammates collide in this fashion — almost as rare as seeing Pedro stay on his feet while in the vicinity of a 50/50 challenge.
