Gerard Piqué, injured: What does he have, how long will he be out and what games would he miss with Barcelona

The first examination determines that the center-back has a sprained right knee.

Official medical report of the club

On Sunday, the FC Barcelona has reported the extent of Gerard Piqué’s injury. “The tests carried out have shown that he has a grade 3 sprain in the internal lateral ligament and partial injury of the anterior cruciate ligament of the right knee. It is low and the evolution will mark availability”

Gerard Piqué had to be substituted in minute 56 of the match between Atlético de Madrid and Barcelona in the Wanda Metropolitano after minutes before he had a collision with Ángel Correa that flexed his right knee excessively and left the central Barcelona player lying on the ground.

The player was replaced by Sergiño Dest and had to be escorted to the bench area by medical services as he was unable to put his foot on the ground, although later was able to walk into the changing room tunnel on his own foot but with a visible limp .

The first diagnosis by the doctors of the Catalan club confirmed that Piqué’s injury doesn’t look good, although it may not be as serious as initially expected. According to the club’s information, the player suffers a “right knee sprain” and remains “pending further tests to determine the extent of the injury”.

Support from barcelonismo

Precisely for this reason, the Catalan center-back received the support of illustrious Barça fans even before the diagnosis was known.
