Televised images showed the man walk on to the field and take a photo of himself with his mobile phone a few meters in front of Barcelona defender Jordi Alba.

It is unclear if the young man, who was wearing an Argentina soccer shirt, the national team led by Lionel Messi, approached other players before he was escorted off by security.

Second-half play quickly resumed at San Moix Stadium. Barcelona won 4-0 with goals from Arturo Vidal, Martin Braithwaite, Jordi Alba and Lionel Messi completing the comfortable win for the La Liga leaders.
