The Spanish national team is already certain of qualifying for the European Championships. The result of the match against Georgia may only determine whether the team finishes first or second in the group. The team that can overtake the Spanish is Scotland.
Gavi injured. Is Barcelona facing a serious problem?
The match started perfectly for the Spaniards, as they took the lead in the fourth minute thanks to Robin Le Normand’s goal. A moment later, the Georgians made a surprise and equalized the score. The goal to make it 1-1 was scored by the biggest star of this national team, i.e Khvicha Kwaracchelia from Naples. In the 23rd minute, Gavi tried to receive the ball, but while doing so, he felt pain in his knee. He grabbed it, and a grimace immediately appeared on his face, indicating that something serious had happened. The Spaniard suffered a lot and did not hide his tears when leaving the pitch.
This injury is a big problem for Barcelona. Xavi may be furious because this is not the first injury to his main player during this qualifying break. Marc-Andre ter Stegen has already returned to the club due to severe back pain. Gavi has played in almost every match for Barcelona this season. He only missed matches against Shakhtar and Deportivo Alves, in which he was suspended for yellow cards. Despite his young age, he has already played over 100 matches for the club.
Many fans and experts pointed out that it is used above average and plays almost constantly. Now their worst-case scenarios may come true. If Gavi injured the ligaments in his knee, his break from the game will last at least several months. The first information from the Spanish media, which cites sources in the federation, indicates that the injury is very serious, but detailed examinations are still needed. We can only hope that Gavi will survive the worst.
