Sergi Roberto's injury was left in the background by the spectacular nature of Gerard Piqué's. The Reus player had to leave the field after noticing a puncture in his right thigh when he finished off a strong shot from outside the area. His face of pain also invited us to think that the injury was transcendent. In fact, he had to leave the team outnumbered during the last minutes by not being able to continue playing.
The tests this Sunday have confirmed the seriousness of the injury, they have already confirmed a rupture of the rectus femoris of the right leg that will take a while minimum of two months away of the playing fields.
Thus, the international says goodbye to 2020, since in the best of cases it would reappear at the end of January. One more setback to add to the long list of problems that Ronald Koeman has to face due to injuries. And is that practically in the blink of an eye you have run out of three important pieces on your board: Ansu Fati, Gerard Piqué and Sergi Roberto. To this list We must also add Samuel Umtiti, who has not played for five monthsr a game for problems in his left knee.
Further, Sergio Busquets is recovering from a sprained left knee, so the Dutch coach will have serious problems to draw up a list in conditions for the Champions League game against Dinamo on Tuesday.
The absence of Sergio Roberto opens the doors to the young Sergiño Dest to occupy the right wing in the next matches. A player who has proven to be very offensive, but with the problem of exposing his back on more than one occasion.
