The bad patch continues for FC Barcelona. After seeing Zinedine Zidane’s Real Madrid come to win at Camp Nou this Saturday, during the Clasico (1-3, 7th day of Liga), the Catalan club formalized this Sunday the injury of Philippe Coutinho. The Bréslien is hit in the thigh.
Holder against Madrid, Coutinho had even played the entire meeting. But Barca’s official statement is clear: “The examinations which were carried out this morning showed that (…) Philippe Coutinho is injured in the femoral biceps of the left thigh.“
Yes the duration of the Brazilian’s unavailability is not yet known, it is in any case a hard blow for Barcelona, especially since since his return to Catalonia, Coutinho seemed to return little by little to the level which he was on the Liverpool side, but he is perhaps a man who could benefit from this absence. Substitute against Real, will Antoine Griezmann have the opportunity to take advantage of it?
