Barca Injury Woes Continue as Ansu Fati Ruled Out.

Barcelona have announced that teenage attacker Ansu Fati will miss Saturday’s trip to Getafe with a tendon problem in his right knee.

Fati’s injury means he will be added to a growing list of key Blaugrana players to miss out on the La Liga encounter, including Lionel Messi.

After Friday’s training session Barcelona released a statement confirming Fati’s injury and indicating the length of time he will miss is currently unknown.

“After the session it was announced that Ansu Fati will miss the game on Saturday at Getafe with a tendon problem in his right knee,” the statement read.

“His recovery will dictate his return to action.”

With Messi missing for the season’s opening month, Fati surprisingly helped fill some of the void by contributing two goals and an assist in five La Liga matches.

But the 16-year-old has now been forced to the sidelines as Barcelona look to improve on a stuttering start to the 2019-20 campaign without several key players.
