Barcelona is sweating on the fitness of defender Gerard Pique after it was revealed that he suffered an injury in their Wednesday night clash with Sevilla.
Pique who is just returning from a long-term injury was superb for Barca as they made it to the Copa Del Rey final on a 3-2 aggregate and contributed a goal with manager Ronald Koeman revealing that the club was waiting for the scan test on the player after the setback.
“We have to wait on Pique. We will know more tomorrow. It’s not the same (knee) injury. We will see tomorrow.
“He was great today and was one of the team’s leaders. He defended really well. He got forward well and it was a great cross (from Griezmann). He scored at a vital moment. The team was phenomenal, though, it’s not just one player. The whole team can be proud of themselves,” Koeman said.
Barca will hope that the injury is not a serious one as they have been short in defence this season as they try to win the league this season with Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid all having a chance of lifting the title.
