Christensen suffers a soleus injury in his left leg


The Danish defender Andreas Christensen suffers an injury to the soleus of his left leg, which occurred in the match played with his team against Finland, the Catalan club confirmed this Saturday.

“The tests carried out this morning of March 25 have shown that the first team player Andreas Christensen suffers an injury to the soleus of his left leg. It is low and his evolution will mark his availability,” reported the culé entity.

The Danish defender had to retire a quarter of an hour before the start of the qualifying match for the Euro 2024 Germany Cup between Denmark and Finland. Despite the fact that FC Barcelona did not estimate a time off, they will be out for between three and four weeks, so they will miss the second leg of the Copa del Rey semifinals against Real Madrid.

Christensen, who arrived at the Spotify Camp Nou as a free agent after ending his relationship with Chelsea, has managed to carve out a hole in the defense this season, complementing himself with the Frenchman Jules Koundé and the Uruguayan Ronald Araujo, his regular partners.

The man from Lillerod has only been left without playing in one of the last 10 games played by the team, the Copa del Rey Clásico at the Santiago Bernabéu, since the day before he had suffered a blow in training. In total, he has accumulated 25 Barca games with a total of 1,837 minutes of play.
