The injury storm is sweeping the Barcelona squad. Xavi Hernandez is missing a series of factors in the first team. Another bad news has just come to the fans. Barcelona’s homepage confirmed that captain Sergi Roberto had a muscle injury.
The Spanish star’s recovery time is unknown. Thus, Roberto becomes Barcelona’s 8th patient at the present time. Positive points for the Nou Camp home team when the young talented duo Alejandro Balde and Lamine Yamal have returned to training.
Basically, Roberto will not be able to recover in time and play in the match between Barcelona and Athletic Bilbao this weekend. Roberto contributed a goal in the 2-2 draw between Barcelona and Granada. In the 2023/2024 season, the 31-year-old player played 224 minutes in La Liga.
Frenkie De Jong is another face that Barcelona fans hope can soon return to the field. The Dutch star is considered a key piece of the puzzle in Barcelona’s midfield.
Besides De Jong, young talent Pedri is receiving great attention. The Spanish international suffered a thigh injury during training in August.
