Barcelona could finally have a fully fit squad when they face Rayo Vallecano on November 25, as only Frenkie de Jong and Sergi Roberto remain on the treatment table. The latest reports suggest that both players are expected to be available for selection for the upcoming match, which would leave the Barcelona squad injury-free for the first time in weeks.
Currently sidelined with a soleus injury in his right leg, Sergi Roberto has been undergoing the recovery process. The team captain’s injury has kept him out of action recently, but there is optimism that he will be able to make a comeback after the upcoming international break. Roberto’s return will provide a boost to Barcelona’s defensive options.
De Jong’s Injury
Frenkie de Jong, one of Barcelona’s key midfielders, suffered a right ankle injury during the first half of the match against Celta Vigo on September 23. Since then, he has been sidelined and hasn’t played any matches. However, there are positive signs regarding his recovery, and the upcoming clash with Rayo Vallecano could mark his return to action.
Should de Jong and Roberto make their comeback against Rayo Vallecano, it would signify that Barcelona’s injury woes are finally over. With all other players now fit and available, this would be a significant boost for the team as they aim to maintain their positive momentum in the league.
Barcelona are set to face Rayo Vallecano with the possibility of having all players available and fit for selection. The potential return of Frenkie de Jong and Sergi Roberto, who have been sidelined for several weeks, would mark the first time the club has an empty infirmary. Their return would provide a much-needed boost to the squad and enhance their chances of securing a positive result against Rayo Vallecano.
