Barcelona suffered triple injury blow in Celta Vigo draw

Barcelona suffered a triple injury blow during their 3-3 draw at Celta Vigo.

Barca suffered three new injuries on the day, to Ansu Fati, Eric Garcia and Nico Gonzalez.

Fati had to go off at the end of a first half in which he'd opened the scoring, having suffered a hamstring injury. As he made a sprint, the 19-year-old immediately pulled up and had to go off.

That's a concern for the club, since he has been so important since returning from a long-term knee injury. Barcelona know that they must be careful with the youngster, who'll now miss Spain's matches this international break.

Eric Garcia was also substituted off at half time, having suffered a calf injury. Then, in the second half, Nico Gonzalez had to go off too with a muscular issue.
