A new Barcelona star will miss Real Madrid game

Raphinha will not be able to play Barcelona’s match against Real Madrid in the Spanish Super Cup final due to injury.

The Brazilian star suffered an injury during the match against Osasuna in the semi-finals, and was forced out in the 42nd minute of the first half, with Lamine Yamal replacing him.

According to the Catalan newspaper “Sport”, Raphinha is suffering from a muscle injury and will not be present in Real Madrid’s next match.

Raphinha’s absence is expected to extend until the end of January, and he is not expected to return before the Villarreal match scheduled for the 27th of this month.

The loss of Rafinha represents a major blow to Xavi Hernandez’s squad, and imposes on the coach limited options, such as relying on Lamine Yamal or playing with Joao Felix on the right front.

Barcelona faces a number of absences, led by Joao Cancelo, whose position on joining El Clásico remains unknown, in light of the rumors about the possibility of his recovery and his participation in part of the final match that will be held at the “All Park” stadium.

In addition to the Portuguese international, the quartet of Inago Martinez, Javi, Ter Stegen and Marcos Alonso are certain to be absent due to injury.

It is noteworthy that Barcelona regained the services of its star Pedri, who participated in a few minutes against Osasuna, and Xavi confirmed his full recovery and readiness to play the upcoming El Clásico.
