Much of the pre-match build-up had focused on Messi, with the prolific Argentina forward just one goal away from matching Muller’s 1972 mark of 85 in a calendar year.
Messi was introduced just before the hour and played for around 25 minutes before being carried off on a stretcher.
Messi burst through down the right but was pushed wide by Artur, who then got back to his line just in time to save Messi’s effort.
The Argentinian then immediately pulled up clutching the back of his leg and was carried off on a stretcher, leaving the hosts to finish the game with 10 men having already made their three changes.
