Reus-born La Masia graduate and FC Barcelona defender Sergi Roberto suffered an injury in the 18th minute of the league clash against Getafe, to the femoral biceps of his left leg. Early door examinations reveal a possible muscle tear that could sideline him for a number of weeks, adding an unexpected twist to the team’s dynamic.

Roberto left the field in visible pain, having sustained a painful injury to the back of his left thigh. As per the reports from Javi Miguel of Diario AS, initial scans hint at a possible fibrillar tear in his biceps femoris, which could possibly rule him to the sidelines for over a month. Further diagnostic tests are planned to accurately determine the extent of his injury and its potential impact on his playing future.

Misfortune has taken a swing at Sergi Roberto, who had been enjoying a stellar run of form and racking up appearances during the tail end of the season. The player has been a consistent name on the team sheet, owing to the injuries to Pedri and Frenkie de Jong.

However, the demanding and extensive fixture list has ultimately caught up with the versatile defender, who now tackles the bad luck by witnessing the upcoming games from the stands, unable to effectively contribute to his team’s efforts on the field.

Sergi Roberto adds his name to the growing injury list at Barcelona, including four other sidelined stars: Pedri, Frenkie de Jong, Dembele, and Christensen. Barring any unforeseen complications, Xavi may be able to welcome back two pivotal players, Pedri and Frenkie De Jong for the gigantic battle against Atletico Madrid, bringing an essential dose of optimism into the besieged Barcelona squad.
