Barcelona manager Xavi provides updates on Gavi & Sergi Roberto’s injuries after the Athletic victory. Xavi expressed concern about right-back Sergi Roberto and also commented that Gavi’s injury in Sunday’s 4-0 win over Athletic Club was “nothing”.
A thigh injury that Gavi tried to play through was treated on the field at first, but he does go down again and had to leave the match shortly after 30 minutes had passed.
The season ended in a disappointing manner when Roberto was taken off on an ambulance with almost ten minutes remaining due to a stress fracture that left the utility player crying in pain. Barcelona was leading 3-0 at the time and would go on to score a goal from Ferran Torres well after the interval.
Upon an unfortunate landing, records from the contest revealed that Roberto hurt his ankle.
Critics questioned Xavi about the status of both players’ health, and he responded, “Gavi’s seems to be nothing, a knock to the calf muscle, but it seems like Sergi is more critical.
He might be out for a couple of days, but we won’t know until Monday.
For Barcelona, which is currently missing Ronald Araujo and Andreas Christensen and has just recently greeted Hector Bellerin back from a period on the sidelines, Roberto’s injury is the most recent in a long string of defense setbacks.
Given that Barcelona knows that one winning might not be enough to prevent them from being eliminated from the Champions League, Bellerin is now anticipated to feature when Bayern Munich comes to Camp Nou on Wednesday. The Blaugrana would be out of the tournament before it even started if Inter defeated last-place Victoria Plzen earlier that evening.
Sergi Roberto ruled out for at least a month with a shoulder injury
Sergi Roberto, a utility player for Barcelona, will be out for at least a month after dislocating his knee during the team’s La Liga victory over Athletic Club.
Barcelona concluded the game with 10 players after the Spaniard suffered a serious injury to his left shoulder in the final seconds of their 4-0 triumph on Sunday. He failed to remain and was carried off the field.
When questioned about an injury sustained by Gavi the same weekend, head coach Xavi also raised questions about Roberto’s injury. It now sounds that his best dreams have been realized.
According to AS, the versatile 30-year-old has dislocated his left shoulder and will be out for at least a month. This effectively puts an end to his chances of joining Spain’s World Cup team and may potentially rule him out till the end of 2022.
And after the game, national group physician Ricard Pruna was able to lessen the damage by reducing the dislocation, but La Blaugrana will now be without their best right for a lengthy amount of time.
It’s a major setback for Barcelona and Roberto, who recently assumed the role by himself. right.
Hector Bellerin has thankfully regained his sharpness after suffering an injury since re-joining the club in the summer, but with Ronald Araujo and Andreas Christensen also sidelined, he is the only obvious choice available in Roberto’s withdrawal.
