Zapping World Eleven Cristiano Ronaldo: Record numbers

Will Ousmane Dembele rediscover his old demons? Spared from injury since the arrival of Xavi Hernandez on the Barça bench, the Frenchman suffered a physical glitch during the Blaugrana’s last match against Girona in the league. Quickly, concern was felt in the ranks of the Catalans, the Spanish media first announcing an absence estimated at three weeks as well as a very uncertain presence for the shock of the Europa League play-offs against Manchester United planned next February 16.

Dembele out for Manchester

But according to information from the team, his quadriceps injury which occurred on January 28 will keep him away from the field for more than a month, at least five weeks. A blow which definitively takes him away from the double confrontation against the English (February 16 in Spain, February 23 in England). A huge blow for Xavi Hernandez who had made him an indisputable starter and one of his number one offensive weapons. The proof, he has already appeared 28 times in all competitions since the start of the season, for eight goals and seven assists. To replace him, Ansu Fati and Raphinha have to fight.

to summarize

Ousmane Dembélé, the French striker of Barça, will miss the next five weeks of competition, therefore the highly anticipated double confrontation against Manchester United in the Europa League. His first injury since the arrival of Xavi.
