Early reports suggest that the injury could keep him out of action for approximately three to four weeks. This means he will be sidelined for some crucial upcoming fixtures. Fixtures including Barcelona’s Champions League clash against Porto and a league match against Granada before the international break.
Raphinha’s injury occurred when he pulled up after taking a shot. After this, he signalled to the Barcelona bench about his need for substitution. Following thorough medical examinations, the initial estimates point to a recovery period of about a month.
Fortunately, the international break will provide additional time for his recovery. This break from match action and intense training is expected to expedite his rehabilitation process. While there is optimism that Raphinha may regain fitness in time for the highly anticipated El Clasico against Real Madrid, the final decision rests with Barcelona’s manager, Xavi.
Barcelona fans will be eagerly awaiting updates on Raphinha’s progress as they hope to see the talented winger back in action as soon as possible.
