Plus headaches for FC Barcelona. The team led by Xavi Hernández not only lost all three away points against Granada, but also against Eric García due to injury.
The Spanish central presents a distal injury to the biceps femoris of the left thigh. According to the Barça team, he will be out of court for at least five weeks.
Garcia, who this Sunday he celebrates his 21st birthday, was replaced by Clement Lenglet in the second half of the game against Granada, as a result of some discomfort in the affected area.
It is estimated that the Spanish will play again in mid-February, so would arrive just for the first leg playoff against Napoli in the Europa League. This will be disputed on 17 of that month at the Camp Nou.
In this way, García joins the Barça’s injured list, in which they appear: Frenkie De Jong, Ronald Araújo, Ansu Fati, Sergi Roberto, Pedri González, Ferran Torres and Martin Braithwaite.
Barcelona and Granada drew 1-1 in the New Stadium of Los Cármenes. Luuk De Jong advanced to the culé team at minute 57, but Antonio Puertas put the final tie at minute 89.
