A bitter victory for Barcelona, which against Real Betis, regained success in the Liga after four matches but lost Ansu Fati.
Serious injury for Ansu Fati, 18 years old, forced to go out at halftime after a clash with Mandi during the first half of the match, finished 5-2 for the blaugrana. As communicated by Barcelona on Twitter in the hours following the match’s end, the medical examinations, which the player was subjected to, revealed an injury to the internal meniscus of the left knee.
The recovery time is still uncertain and will be clarified with the evolution of the player’s clinical developments. Ansu Fati, in any case, seems to be destined to a long stop which may last for the remaining year. Ansu Fati may miss all the next 2020 matches including the Champions League group stage match between Barcelona and Juventus scheduled at Camp Nou on next December 8, 2020.
