The FC Barcelona has added to his fifth footballer title lesionado this season, six if we take in account to Araújo. In this opportunity treats of a problem of knee of another central: Jules Koundé

Calendar of FC Barcelona

FC Barcelona equalized this Sunday in its visit to Granada (2-2) and although it let go two important points, surely the worst news ended up being a new bad refereeing work of Soto Grado and another possible injury of a soccer player. With the first situation more than confirmed, the official statement on the physical condition of the French central has also arrived.

This is what the Barcelona club said on Monday afternoon, noting that "tests have shown that he suffers a sprain in the internal lateral ligament of the left knee," says Barça. In this way, and although as always the statement details that "its evolution will mark its availability", Koundé could be in the infirmary at least three weeks, understanding that it was a mild sprain and not a grade two, which would already have a longer recovery time (5 weeks).

It is worth remembering that this Sunday the Frenchman could not complete the first time in Los Cármenes. At 38 minutes, Gavi blocked a local team action and in the middle of the chaos, the Blaugrana midfielder fell over the knee of the Frenchman, who threw himself on the lawn with large samples of pain to enter the assists. The player was taken care of in the band and could even continue a few more minutes, but when the clock was close to 43 minutes, Koundé went to the clash to try to fight for an air ball with Lucas Boyé and did not last.

The Classic against Madrid, the key date

As happens as Robert Lewandowski or Raphinha, the recovery of Koundé has as a priority on October 28, day in which Barça will have its first Classic of the season against Real Madrid. Right now the merengues have split to three points, so a defeat in that meeting could complicate the landscape a little for Xavi.

That is why undoubtedly the presence of the Frenchman seems key in that encounter, but certainly 20 days of recovery for a knee sprain, no matter how slight it was, is not very possible. In fact, some reports in the Spanish press maintain that it would be a second degree injury and his recovery would be at least four weeks, so it would be 'KO' of the Classic.
