Barcelona are facing uncertainty ahead of their La Liga clash against Granada as star striker Robert Lewandowski may be sidelined due to an injury.
Lewandowski sustained the injury during their 1-0 victory over Porto in the Champions League on Wednesday. While Barcelona now lead their Champions League group, their focus shifts back to the domestic league where they trail Real Madrid by a single point.
Lewandowski’s injury occurred during the first half of the match against Porto, leaving his participation in Sunday’s league fixture in doubt. The Polish striker has been a crucial part of Barcelona’s attack this season, and his absence would be a significant blow.
Barcelona’s victory against Porto was a significant achievement as it marked the first time since the 2020-21 season that the Catalan side had secured back-to-back wins in the group stage. In the past two seasons, Barcelona had failed to advance beyond the group stage of the Champions League.
Lewandowski’s injury adds an element of uncertainty to Barcelona’s upcoming match against Granada. While Barcelona remains unbeaten in La Liga this season, Granada currently sits second-to-last in the league standings and have only managed one win so far.
