Thiago Out for 2 Months

The worst fears regarding Thiago's MCL tear have come true. After just recovering from his shinbone injury Thiago was just getting back into game rhythm, but in the game against Sevilla he suffered a MCL tear that will sideline him for eight weeks. It is still unknown at what point in the game Thiago suffered his injury but his arrival on the pitch as a substitute sparked Barcelona to complete the comeback and earn the win in Andalusia.

The two month recovery time means that Thiago suffered a Grade III MCL tear - the worst MCL tear one can have. This is just extremely unlucky for the young midfielder who was just getting back on the pitch. Thiago's abilities were never questioned and his presence on the pitch was always noticeable. He will be sorely missed over the next two months. The club decided to take a conservative recovery plan and won't try to force the youngster on the pitch prematurely.

If Thiago misses the entire two months he won't be able to participate in eleven games. He will miss games against Benfica, Real Madrid, Deportivo La Coruña, Celtic and Rayo Vallecano in October and Celta Vigo, Celtic, RCD Mallorca, Real Zaragoza, Spartak Moscow and Levante in November.
