Barcelona – Gavi’s injury updates

Barcelona could lose Gavi for the rest of the season if the midfielder’s injury is serious and the updates look ‘worrying.’

International breaks have never been the club’s favorite as their players could face severe injury, which could rule them out for long. Days ago, La Liga giant Real Madrid lost their key player Eduardo Camavinga, and today, it’s Barcelona that may deal with the same issue.

Gavi was forced off in the first half of Spain’s Euro 2024 qualifier against Georgia due to injury.

Spain were involved in what was essentially a meaningful Euro 2024 qualifier against Georgia on Sunday, with Luis de la Fuente’s side having already booked their place in the tournament with matches to spare. However, one incident in the game could significantly impact Barcelona’s LaLiga and other campaigns this season as Gavi seemed to be in agony.

Spain’s team doctor “very worried” about Gavi injury

The youngster felt a twinge in his right knee after a challenge with a Georgian opponent but attempted to play on. He then positioned himself to take a high pass out of the air near the touchline, twisting his body 180 degrees as he looked to control the ball and run towards the penalty area. As he turned, however, he immediately knew something was wrong, with his groans picked up by the pitch side microphones.

Gavi was replaced by Oihan Sancet in the 26th minute, with Spain’s team doctor Óscar Luis Celada revealing he was “very worried” for the Barça man when asked about his injury at halftime by Spanish broadcaster RTVE.

Gavi to undergo tests with Spain and Barça

It is still too early to say how severe the injury is, but the initial signs don’t look especially promising. The 19-year-old will undergo initial tests with the national team in Valladolid before returning to Barcelona for further examination.

La Blaugrana have had a host of injury issues to deal with in the first few months of the season, but Gavi has been immune to them until now, missing only two matches because of suspension. He has started 13 of Barcelona’s 17 games, playing the full 90 minutes on ten occasions.
