Barcelona revealed in an official statement on its official website the latest developments in the injury of the captain and defender Gerard Pique.
Pique had completed the second leg of the King’s Cup semi-final against Seville, which ended with three goals, in a legendary performance for Barça and achieved a great Remontada after losing in the first leg by two clean goals.
According to Barcelona’s statement, the player suffers from a sprain in the lateral ligament of the knee and is therefore not available for the next match in the Spanish League against Osasuna, and then the Paris Saint-Germain match in the second leg of the Champions League final at the Parc des Princes.
Pique participated in the match fully yesterday, and scored the second goal in the 94th minute after a strong header after taking advantage of Antoine Griezmann’s cross.
According to all published reports, the injury of the veteran Spanish player will take two weeks to return, which makes him miss the rematch against Paris, no matter how Barcelona’s medical apparatus tries to prepare him before the match, so it could be very dangerous for him if he participated before recovery.
It is noteworthy that Barcelona lost at home in the first leg at the Camp Nou stadium by four to one, in a match that saw Pique quarreled with his teammates on the field.
