Barcelona superstar Joao Cancelo reassures fans about injury concerns after being substituted during the Porto victory.
There’s no question about the man of the match for Barcelona in their pivotal win against Porto on Tuesday. Joao Cancelo delivered an outstanding performance, contributing with a goal and scoring another as the Catalans secured a 2-1 victory, ensuring their place in the Champions League knockout stages.
Yet, worries arose when Joao Cancelo had to be substituted late in the game due to an injury. With another crucial match against Atletico Madrid approaching, this development likely left many Barcelona fans anxious.
Luckily, Cancelo addressed concerns post-match (via Diario AS) and alleviated worries about the issue. He mentioned feeling confident that he will be ready to face Atletico Madrid on Sunday.
“In the matches with the national team and in Vallecas I already felt my hamstring was loaded. Today a little more. I will be ready for the Atlético Madrid game on Sunday.”
Barcelona is fortunate that Cancelo seems to be okay. He is undoubtedly set to be a key player once again in the upcoming match against Atletico Madrid.
