Big boost for Chelsea as Barcelona gets injury blow

On Saturday night, Barcelona were back in domestic action as Girona were smashed by the league leaders.

Barca won the match with ease, but it came at a cost in the second half. Ernesto Valverde lost two players to injury: Gerard Pique and Nelson Semedo.

Pique was subbed out the match in the 64th minute for Thomas Vermaelen.

The Spanish international centre-half has been struggling with injury problems for a while, and his exit against Girona was another sign that he’s struggling for full fitness.

Valverde went on to make three subs in the match before he was left to see out the game with just ten men.
That’s after Nelson Semedo hobbled out of the match with a bad looking injury.
Will Pique and Semedo be healthy for the Chelsea match? Comment Below!
