Absent in recent weeks due to a knee injury, Gérard Piqué is present in the FC Barcelona group for the Clasico this Saturday (9 p.m.) against Real Madrid. Sergi Roberto is also making his return for this shock of the 30th day of La Liga.
It is an important return for FC Barcelona before the Clasico this Saturday. In the fight for the title in La Liga, Barça will move to Real Madrid, the current third in the championship which hosts the second. The Catalan club announced this Friday the return of Gérard Piqué for this poster counting for the 30th day of the championship.
Gerard Pique had been out of the field since a knee injury in early March. The experienced defender had to give up the round of 16 second leg of the Champions League against PSG. In the first leg, he had already returned from a long knee injury to be established during the heavy defeat of FC Barcelona at Camp Nou (1-4) against PSG.
Sergi Roberto also present
It remains to be seen whether Ronald Koeman will trust Gérard Piqué from the Clasico, while a three-defender system has been installed in recent weeks. Frenkie De Jong has retreated in recent matches, most often to support Clément Lenglet and Oscar Mingueza.
Disturbed by a muscle injury in recent weeks, Sergi Roberto is also present in the FC Barcelona group. The rest of the group is unsurprising. If successful this Saturday (9 p.m.), which would be the seventh in a row in the league, the Catalan team would temporarily take back control of La Liga before Atlético’s trip on Sunday to Betis Sevilla.
