Injury Blow: Robert Lewandowski Out For El Clasico.

C Barcelona have confirmed that their top striker, Robert Lewandowski is out with an ankle sprain which he sustained during their Champions League group stage game against Porto on Wednesday, October 4.

Robert Lewandowski sustained the injury following a challenge by Porto’s David Carmo in the Champions League game which ended in a 1-0 victory for the Spanish team.

Initially, the Poland international was diagnosed with inflamed shin but the club has confirmed that the situation has become more serious than anticipated.

Based on this development, Robert Lewandowski will not play this weekend’s La Liga game between FC Barcelona and Granada.

Despite Barcelona’s assertion that Lewandowski’s condition is only a sprained ankle, the Catalan daily reports that Lewandowski may be out for longer than a month. This would make Lewandowski unavailable for their crucial encounter against Real Madrid on October 28.

Some media outlets have reported the diagnosis more favorably; Diario AS said that the grade two sprain might keep him out for three to four weeks. As a result, his presence would be uncertain until the very last second.

Lewandowski intends to make a comeback for the Real Madrid match, despite other media outlets reporting that he won’t be fit enough for the El Clasico game.

A statement from FC Barcelona earlier today, October 5, reads: “Tests carried out this morning have revealed that Robert Lewandowski has a left ankle sprain.

“He is out, and his recovery will determine his availability.”
