In the 60th minutes: there was a very concerning situation. Two Barcelona players were down injured, but the most concern is for defender Ronald Araujo as both teams signal for the medical staff and the ambulance onto the field very quickly. it looked very, very scary..
The game was under a significant delay, but football appears to be secondary at that moment. The television broadcast didn’t show replay or a close-up of the player instantly, which made it more concerning.
Finally, when a replay was shown, and it’s a very innocuous clash of heads with Gavi that resulted in the issue. Araujo appeared fine, with nothing more than a grimace as he ran away, and then went down moments later off the ball. He’s taken off the field on a backboard and loaded into the ambulance. The Nou Camp crowd is stunned but gives Araujo a muted cheer.
As the game looks to restart, Clement Lenglet comes on to replace the injured defender, while Memphis Depay is replaced by Ansu Fati. Also to mention, Celta Vigo made the necessary change just before the injury, as Renato Tapio replaced Thiago Galhardo.
