A collision with Atetico’s Angel Correa saw the centre-back’s knee bend awkwardly and
– after treatment – he was helped off the field visibly distressed.
The defeat was Barca’s third of the season and it leaves them tenth in LaLiga
– nine points behind leaders Real Sociedad – having played just eight games.
And according to Spanish outlet Sport, the misery has been compounded
for Ronald Koeman’s side who now face six months without their defensive leader.
The Catalans are already missing Ansu Fati and Samuel Umtiti while
Sergi Roberto also limped off injured at the Wanda Metropolitano on Saturday.
