No one knows the secret of the injuries that suddenly struck Barcelona, even though we are just at the beginning of the season.
It is worth noting that Barcelona is waiting for a strong match after the international break, against Athletic Bilbao on October 22nd, before hosting Shakhtar in the Champions League on the 25th of the same month, after which the team will play the anticipated El Clásico against Real Madrid on October 28th.
But misfortunes continue to plague Barcelona, as a new major crisis strikes Barcelona with the injury of another star from the Catalan team, threatening the fortunes of Spanish coach Xavi Hernandez’s team before facing Real Madrid in El Clasico this month, on the twenty-eighth of October.
After the injury of Frenkie de Jong and the Brazilian Rafinha, which was preceded by the injury to Barcelona’s heart, Pedri, followed by the Polish sniper Lewandowski, Barcelona was not spared from all these blows until the blow came that would break the back of the Catalan team, which was the injury of the team’s star player, Alejandro Balde.
He is the new name that joined the list of the Catalan team’s injuries. After Robert Lewandowski, he suffered an injury while participating with Spain against Scotland yesterday, Thursday, and was replaced in the first half as a result of that injury.
The newspaper “Mundo Deportivo” confirmed that the player is suffering from pain in the connective muscle, so he left the Spanish camp and will not travel to Norway with the national team to play the next match against Haaland’s national team, the Norwegian national team, which could decide qualification to Euro 2024 in favor of the Spanish national team.
If the player is confirmed to be injured for a longer period than expected, it will be a severe blow to Xavi, who is already suffering from the absence of Lewandowski, Pedri, Frenkie de Jong, Rafinha, Jules Kounde and Lamin Yamal.
It seems that Xavi will live a nightmare in the next La Sico in light of all these injuries.
