Concern in Barcelona: Jordi Alba and Memphis Depay do not have an estimated recovery time

Barcelona lives by a complicated situation in sports, since they were eliminated from the Champions League in the group stage and are very relegated in the table of positions of LaLiga Santander. Coach Xavi Hernández will seek to escape the bad moment immediately, but he has some concerns: Jordi Alba Y Memphis Depay they are injured heading into the weekend.

Precisely, in the defeat against Bayern Munich, which condemned the Catalans to the Europa League, both players ended up feeling, although with different annoyances. In the case of the left-back, he could only be on the field until 31 minutes (Óscar Mingueza replaced him), since the pain prevented him from continuing to play at the Allianz Arena in the city of Munich.

After the meeting, Jordi Alba underwent rigorous medical examinations and specialists reported that the hamstring area of ​​the right thigh is affected. For now, there is no estimated recovery time for the defender, but the club assured that everything will depend on the evolution process.

In the same way, Barcelona detailed that Memphis Depay (who completed the 90 minutes against Bayern) ended with an injury in the hamstring of the right thigh and will be out. However, as in the case of his colleague, the medical department of the institution has not estimated a specific period for the Dutchman to return to the fields.

The absence of the scorer generates a greater concern for Xavi Hernández, since there is no substitute of the same level. So far, Depay has scored eight goals and two assists for LaLiga Santander, being the institution’s top scorer so far in the 2021-22 season. Luuk de Jong is emerging as the replacement, although with different characteristics.

Sergi Roberto has already been operated

Barcelona also gave details on the status of Sergi Roberto, who last played on October 27 (1-0 loss to Rayo Vallecano). The versatile soccer player had an injury to the rectus femoris of the right thigh operated on and will now begin the recovery process.
