Net, KO for a sprained left ankle

first_imgThe truth is that Neto is not having excessive fortune in his first season as a Blaugrana. After breaking the scaphoid of the left hand during the preseason, the goalkeeper has again suffered an accident in the form of injury during the Copa del Rey match against Ibiza. This time it is not as serious as the one he suffered in his hand – he will not need to go through the operating room -, but he could be at least two to three weeks off. Everything will ultimately depend on the degree of sprain injury in the left ankle that will be evaluated on Thursday after the relevant tests. There is no doubt that Neto is having a discreet passage through Barcelona. To his hopeful premiere against Inter Milan (1-2) in the Champions League, in the rest of the games he has played his participation has been very deficient. Both in the LaLiga derby against Espanyol (2-2), and in the Spanish Super Cup against Atlético (2-3) and now in Copa del Rey against Ibiza (1-2) their performance has not raised expectations initials. It also happens that Neto has not yet premiered at the Camp Nou. In principle, the loss of Neto will be occupied by the goalkeeper of the subsidiary, Iñaki Peña, who this season has entered the dynamics of the first team, at least in most of the training. In any case, and as the tight schedule comes, Net could perfectly miss both the knockout stages and the quarterfinals if they finally qualify, since both qualifiers are scheduled for January 29 and February 5respectively. Obviously it would not be available for LaLiga matches that Barcelona will play against Valencia, Levante and Betis.last_img read more
