Andreas Christensen will miss the upcoming Clasico match between Barcelona and Real Madrid due to a calf strain
Andreas Christensen is likely to be absent from the last Clasico match of the season as he suffered a calf injury while playing for Denmark during the Euro 2024 qualifier against Finland.
Christensen reportedly out for up to a month
He came off in the 18th minute. And the injury is confirmed to be on his left calf by Barcelona after multiple reports emerged regarding his injury.
Barcelona have not provided any specific information on Andreas Christensen’s return date, and only stated that he is currently “unavailable for selection and his recovery will determine his return”.
However, according to reports, the club is anticipating him to be out of action for about a month due to a calf strain.
Andreas Christensen may miss up to six games including the Copa del Rey semi-final second leg against Real Madrid on April 5, after sustaining a calf injury while on international duty.
Barcelona is yet to give a timeframe for his return and his availability will depend on his recovery. Although Barcelona has a 12-point lead in La Liga, they will miss Christensen’s contribution as he has become a key player for the team.
Andreas Christensen joined Barcelona on a free transfer from Chelsea during the pre-season. Initially, he had limited opportunities to play and appeared in only five La Liga matches before the World Cup due to injuries.
However, he was more involved in the team’s recent fixtures and played in nine out of their ten games across all competitions before the international break, except for the first leg against Real Madrid.
