Barcelona Confirms Eric Garcia Injury Blow After Scan

On Saturday night, the Blaugrana let two points slip away from them as they conceded a last-minute equalizer.

Barca’s season has been hampered by injury concerns, prompting the club to reorganize its medical staff with the appointment of Xavi Hernandez.

But while some injuries are clearing up, with the likes of Ansu Fati, Pedri and Martin Braithwaite all set to return in the coming weeks, there have been further fitness blows.

Ronald Araujo suffered a hand injury that required surgery this week, while Frenkie de Jong has been ruled out for a couple of weeks with a muscular problem.

On Saturday night, there was another blow, with defender Eric Garcia limping off in the 54th minute.

Garcia has subsequently been diagnosed with a distal right femoris injury, according to Barcelona.

Garcia will be out for at least a few weeks as a result, and Xavi now has a defensive problem to deal with as a result of Araujo’s absence.

Clement Lenglet and Gerard Pique are still available for Barcelona, and Oscar Mingueza can also step in.

Meanwhile, Samuel Umtiti is rumored to be on his way out, and Barcelona has been hesitant to call on the Frenchman this season.
