Barcelona to face Real Madrid without key player due to hamstring injury

Introduction to the article:
Barcelona’s victory in the Spanish Super Cup semi-final was dampened by the news that Raphinha suffered a hamstring injury, leaving him sidelined for at least two weeks.

Concerns for Barcelona’s Attacking Depth

The injury to Raphinha, who has been a standout performer for Barcelona in recent weeks, raises concerns about the team’s attacking depth. With important fixtures on the horizon, the team will need to find suitable replacements to fill the void left by Raphinha’s absence.

Impact on Upcoming Matches

Raphinha’s injury means he will miss the upcoming Superclasico and the La Liga clash with Real Betis. This will pose a significant challenge for Barcelona, as they will need to find alternative options to maintain their attacking threat in these crucial fixtures.

Options for Barcelona

Despite the setback, Barcelona does have options to cover for Raphinha’s absence. Lamine Yamal and Ferran Torres are both capable of filling the void on the right wing, providing Xavi Hernandez with some flexibility in his team selection. However, Raphinha’s injury highlights the importance of having depth in the squad to navigate through such setbacks.
