Mateo Musacchio was stretchered off during AC Milans clash with Real Betis after being knocked out cold by his team-mate Franck Kessie.

The Europa League group game ended 1-1, but was overshadowed by the worrying injury to the Milan defender, who was in a neck brace when he left the pitch.

Kessie collided with his team-mate as both players went for the same ball in the closing stages of the match, and Musacchio immediately went limp.
