Barcelona have lost their main defender Andreas Christensen to injury. 

Barcelona said on the 26th (Korean time), “As a result of the tests conducted this morning, Christensen suffered a shin muscle injury in his left leg.” 

Christensen started against Finland in the European Football Federation (UEFA) Euro qualifier held on the 24th, but was replaced due to injury in the 18th minute of the first half. A closer examination revealed that Christensen would need three to four weeks to recover. 스포츠토토

Bad news for Barcelona. Barcelona will play the second leg of the quarterfinals against Real Madrid at home on the 6th of the Copa del Rey (King’s Cup). The first leg was won 1-0, but the score difference is not large, so it is not a relaxed situation.

Christensen is also expected to miss league matches against Elche, Girona and Getafe. Depending on the injury situation, the Atletico Madrid match could be a return match. 

Barcelona has been plagued with injuries lately. Earlier this year, Ousmane Dembele suffered an injury and was sidelined for nearly two months, and last month, key midfielder Pedri was also injured and was unable to play in recent matches. Both players are expected to return in early April.
