Jimenez was given oxygen and stretchered off, While Luiz was bandaged up and continued
Luiz – who was bleeding from his head – rose to his knees after a few minutes and was bandaged up and checked by the medics before being allowed to continue.
Whereas there was more concern for Jimenez, motionless on the pitch, inside the six-yard box as the medics swept in to treat him.
Jimenez did not move as he was given oxygen, lifted onto a stretcher and the stretcher was placed onto a trolley, wheeled around the pitch and down the tunnel.
Fabio Silva came on to replace him and the game continued, the atmosphere even more surreal than before.
It is believed Jimenez has been taken to hospital and receive further medical attention.
