Maximum concern at Barcelona regarding Gerard Pique's injury. The first examination from the club's medical staff at the Wanda Metropolitano suggests a serious knee injury and four to six months out.

Pique will undergo tests in Barcelona on Sunday to determine the severity of the injury but the sensations of both the player and the medical staff invite pessimism. 

The defender's face was a picture as he limped back to the dressing room close to tears. The fear now is that he will have to undergo surgery, as Ansu Fati, out for four months, did two weeks ago. 

Pique, 33, got injured in an unfortunate play in the second half when he clashed with Correa, who fell awkwardly on him after a challenge from Jordi Alba. 

Barça coach Ronald Koeman has a huge problem on his hands because he's already short in defence. Ronald Araujo and Samuel Umtiti are already injured. 

Clement Lenglet, therefore, is the only fit first team centre-back available at the moment and Frenkie de Jong is frequently being asked to play at the back.
