Barcelona worrying over players overseas amid injury crisis

Barcelona worrying over players overseas amid injury crisis

| sport

With seven players in the treatment room, FC Barcelona are worried about what might happen during the current international break. Balde has already been ruled out after Spain's win over Scotland on Thursday and will be out for around 10 days due to adductor discomfort. 

Perhaps the highest levels of concern for the staff and medical services are those who have made long-haul trips. Not only Ronald Araujo, who is indispensable for 'Loco' Bielsa with Uruguay, but also Gündogan and Ter Stegen. 


With Germany having already qualified directly for the European Championships, which they will host next summer, they are playing a lot of friendlies. They have cost them dearly, by the way -- especially Hansi Flick, who was sacked a few weeks ago due to poor results and poor performances. 

The fact is that Gündogan and Ter Stegen are on American soil. Tonight they will face the United States. With the ex-Atlantic Dest in their ranks, by the way (he continues to have ownership, on loan at PSV). And Mexico, in the early hours of the morning in Spain (2:00) will play against Mexico in Philadelphia. 

The same with Araujo, who will play against Brazil same day and time (2:00). And with a considerable load after playing 90 minutes in the 'battle' against Colombia. It is expected that Ter Stegen and Ilkay will not play all the games and will rotate as they are friendlies.
