Gavi and Sergi Roberto were injured in Barca’s 4-0 win over Athletic Bilbao and are in danger of missing the Champions League clash with Bayern Munich.

Barcelona have two personnel setbacks to contend with ahead of Wednesday’s Champions League clash with Bayern Munich. Golden boy Gavi and versatile Sergi Roberto both picked up injuries in the 4-0 win over Athletic Bilbao.

Barcelona thrashed Athletic Bilbao on Sunday night to stay level with Real Madrid at the top with a 4-0 home win. On the other hand, the Catalans are on the verge of being eliminated from the Champions League. Barca must beat Bayern Munich next Wednesday to at least theoretically keep a chance of reaching the last 16.

Gavi and Sergi Roberto were injured

Coach Xavi will have to go without two players for the game against the record champions Germany. Youngster Gavi, who was crowned Golden Boy on Friday, had to leave the field in pain after just 34 minutes against Bilbao. Apparently, the midfielder injured his groin. It remains to be seen whether he can play again against Bayern.

The versatile Sergi Roberto got even worse. The 30-year-old curled the ball past Bilbao’s Alex Berenguer in the 83rd minute before catching his left shoulder. Roberto crumpled to the turf and was carried off the pitch in tears. In the evening, the club announced that he dislocated his shoulder and will be out of the field for an indefinite period.

Xavi is now only available to Hector Bellerin at right-back. Andreas Christensen and Ronald Araujo also have injuries. In the center of defense, a new contract should be signed on Jules Cunde.
