FC Barcelona is going through a very delicate moment at a sporting level and the injuries of important players intensify the crisis of the Catalans in the field

Calendar of FC Barcelona

For anybody is a secret, not even a reason of doubt, that the beginning of season of the FC Barcelona has been far to fulfil the expectations and that, after the stop FIFA, have noticed more than ever the defensive lacks and offensives of the group directed -until the moment- by Ronald Koeman. The Barcelona accumulate a defeat and two ties, in which it has showed a very poor image.

The alarms are lit and todo the barcelonismo is expecting of drastic decisions and revolutionised from the offices of the Camp Nou, but is not the only that racks to the team. And it is that in addition to that several footballers are not showing a good performance or that Ronald Koeman do not find the solutions to the problems of his approach, the drops by injuries play a key and worrisome paper.

Right now, in the previous of the visit of the Raise to the Camp Nou (Sunday, 16:15 hours), the FC Barcelona has six players of the first team (Ansu Fati, Dembélé, Kun Agüero, Braithwaite, Jordi Alba and Pedri) in the infirmary, more Alejandro Balde, player of the filial that has been working under the orders of Koeman from the pre-season. In total, are seven players that have not received the high medical and that suppose a big worry for the Barcelona. The positive, is that they approach good news for the Barça.

Ansu Fati And Pedri González are the next in receiving the high and, in fact, could go in in the announcement for the party and contest some minutes. The club does not want to force them to avoid a relapse or some problem, but are key players that can help to the Barça to go out of the 'hollow' in which they have been in this start of course. Koeman, or the one who was in the bench, will have to take his cases little by little.

In the case of Ansu, is more near that never to receive the high medical, after completing his recovery of the break of the internal meniscus of the left knee that suffered does more than ten months. Pedri González, by his part, was diagnosed after the party against the Bayern with a muscular injury in the cuádriceps of the left thigh. The three will be for the party in front of the Raise or Benfica.

With Jordi Alba there is a lot of more doubts, because desconoce with accuracy when will be available. The left side, in the party of the Champions League in front of the Bayern, suffered an injury in the biceps femoral of the right thigh and would be of return after the stop of selections, to weigh that this Friday 'Sportive World' has desvelado that it could be available for the crash in front of the 'levantistas'.

In the same situation is the canterano Alejandro Balde. The Barça confirmed that "has a lumbalgia. It is drop and the evolution will mark his availability". There are doubts regarding the time in which it will be out of action, but would not have to happen of the stop of selections.

Recoveries to average term

Those that yes will be smart to finals of October or principles of November are Ousmane Dembélé and Sergio the 'Kun' Agüero. The French attacker is recovering of the desinserción in the sinew of the biceps of the right knee that suffered in the Eurocopa and that forced him to go through the operating theatre. The feelings are good, but knowing his -worrisome- record of injuries, from the Barça will not take any risk and will go back to play when it was recovered to 100%.

In the same situation is Agüero, with an injury tendinosa in the internal twin of the right leg. The Argentinian would have to be smart to jump to the maximum field to half of November, but as with Dembélé, in the Barça prefer to take cautions.

Finally, in a situation less optimist is Martin Braithwaite, the one who went through the operating theatre recently to treat an injury femoropatelar in the left knee. The Danish attacker will live a long rehabilitation and complicated, reason by which will be out of action by three or four months, if all is in order. It says him goodbye to the first stretch of the season and will return in 2022.
