Barcelona confirms it: the worst news for Xavi a week before the ‘final’ against Bayern Munich

Bad news for Xavi Hernandez Facing the Barcelona’s game against Bayern Munich next Wednesday for the Champions League. One of the most important elements of the Spanish coach will undergo surgery and will be out for the next four months. It is nothing less than the midfielder Sergi Roberto, who will undergo surgery in the next few days for the injury to the rectus femoris of the right thigh, as reported on Wednesday by the Catalan club’s medical services on their social networks.

The intervention will be carried out by Dr. Lasse Lempainen, in Turku (Finland), and will be supervised, as usual in these cases, by the Barça team’s doctors. If there were no problems, Sergi Roberto would be back on the courts in April 2022. Precisely, in the final straight of the season.

Rectus femoris problems in the right thigh have been recurring for Sergi Roberto since last season. The youth squad has been out since last October 27, when he was injured in Vallecas. Then, the medical report provided by Barcelona spoke of an elongation in the quadriceps of the same leg.

Barcelona reports on Sergi Roberto’s operation.

Sergi Roberto has played 12 games this year (9 in the League and 3 in the Champions League) and has scored two goals: in the victories against Real Sociedad, on the first day (4-2), and against Getafe, in the third (2-1). Xavi will have to cope without him.

Barcelona is at stake for life

The match between Spaniards and Germans is scheduled for Wednesday, December 8 from 3 in the afternoon (Peruvian time) at the Allianz Arena stadium. The Catalans must win so as not to depend on the outcome of the other duel between Benfica and Dinamo Kiev.

In Group E of the Champions League, Bayern Munich is the absolute leader with 15 points. Barcelona is second with 7 points, followed by Benfica with 5 and Dinamo Kiev (1) closes the standings, with no chances of reaching the Europa League.
