Tests performed this Sunday on @SergiRoberto10 have shown that he has a rupture in the femoral rectus of his right thigh. The approximate time he will be out is two months. pic.twitter.com/hnG6QOVulq
The Catalan giants have also offered an update on Gerard Pique’s knee injury but have stopped short of saying how long the center-back will be out of action for.
“Gerard Piqué has a sprained right knee. The Barça centre back is waiting for more tests to ascertain the extent of the injury after a collision with Atlético striker Correa forced him off the field of play on the hour mark.”

Roberto looks set to be replaced in the starting XI by Sergino Dest who made a bright start to life at Barca since his move to Ajax but has dropped out of the team in recent weeks. Dest now has the chance to make the right-back slot his own with Roberto now sidelined until 2021.
Pique’s absence is more complicated because Ronald Araujo and Samuel Umtiti remain out of action too. Frenkie de Jong seems the obvious short-term replacement unless Koeman turns to Barca B.
