Rakitic suffers hamstring strain
Barcelona have announced that midfielder Ivan Rakitic has supported a hamstring strain in his correct leg while on universal obligation.
A recuperation time has not yet been planned for the Croatian, meaning it is unclear how long it may keep him out of action.
Rakitic was at that point set to miss Barcelona’s outing to Atletico Madrid after the international break through suspension.
Amid the Blaugrana’s 4-3 misfortune at home to Real Betis last time out, Rakitic was sent off, which means he was inaccessible for determination at the Estadio Wanda Metropolitano.
It appears the goal for the midfielder could be to return to action in the Champions League conflict against PSV on November 28, despite the fact that Valverde will be quick to abstain from going for broke with him.
An injury of this kind usually means two weeks out of action and the club have not given an expected return date.
On the off chance that the previous Sevilla man doesn’t return against the Dutch side, he would then be likely to be back in action a few days later against Villarreal on league duty.
