Midfielder Thiago Alcantara will be out for eight weeks. Tests carried out of Sunday confirmed that the blaugrana player has torn the ligament in his right knee. Thiago will begin treatment that will keep him away from the pitch for approximately the next two months.
If Thiago’s recovery follows the projected timeline, the player will miss 11 matches. That includes all the games scheduled in October (Benfica, Madrid, Deportivo, Celtic and Rayo) and November (Celta, Celtic, Mallorca, Zaragoza, Spartak and Levante).
We at totalBarça wish Thiago a speedy and thorough recovery!
