Barcelona’s Ronald Araujo has been ruled out of action for 2-3 weeks. Sustaining a minor injury to his adductor during the team’s recent El Clasico match against Real Madrid. The 24-year-old defender was seen icing the affected area after the game. Tests conducted by the medical team revealed an adductor overload.
As a result of the injury, Araujo will miss Uruguay’s upcoming international fixtures against Japan and South Korea. This is undoubtedly a disappointment for the player. Ronald Araujo was likely looking forward to representing his country on the international stage.
Despite this setback, there is some positive news for Araujo and Barcelona fans. The defender is expected to be available for Barcelona’s Copa del Rey semi-final second leg against Real Madrid on April 5. Araujo played a crucial role in Barca’s recent victory over Los Blancos. He did score an own goal early in the game but it should be overlooked by the win.
Araujo’s absence may be felt in Barcelona’s upcoming La Liga game against Elche on April 1. The defender is expected to return for the fifth and final El Clasico of the season. He will join injured Barca stars Pedri and Ousmane Dembele in making his return, which is sure to be a boost for the team.
Overall, while Araujo’s injury is a setback for both the player and his national team, it is not expected to have a significant impact on Barcelona’s season. With a deep squad and several talented players ready to step up, the team should be able to manage without Araujo for the next few weeks.
