Araújo is back

The Uruguayan central defender was discharged on Monday after the morning session and has entered the list for the match against Huesca at the Camp Nou.


Ronald Araújo has been appearing and disappearing from the Blaugrana scene this last month and a half. Since he suffered a grade two sprain in his left ankle on February 7 during the match against Betis (2-3), he has not raised his head. He was tested to reach the first leg of the Champions League against PSG, nine days after being injured, when the doctors predicted him about three weeks out. Koeman finally ruled out infiltration due to the high risk of relapse. Fifteen days later he reappeared against Sevilla (0-2) in LaLiga, but he could only endure 18 minutes on the field, after he relapsed from his injury. He tried again to return for the Champions League return against PSG, but once again the Dutch coach stopped his desire. And finally, now, three weeks after relapsing to his left ankle, the doctors gave the OK, he was discharged and has entered the list to play tonight's game against Huesca at Camp Nou.

Everything indicates that Araújo will start on the bench and will start in the second half. And the main objective is that the center-back can help the team from minute zero against Real Sociedad in Anoeta next Sunday. And from here on in the eleven games that will remain in the season: ten in LaLiga and one in the Cup.

Thus, the return of the Uruguayan international is the great novelty of the list, where Leo Messi and Frenkie de Jong stand out with their own light: both are warned of sanction, so if they see a card today they will not play against Real Sociedad.

In addition, the Argentine striker, with a special incentive: today he will equal Xavi Hernández's record of official matches with the elastic Blaugrana. Leo will reach 767 games for Barça.

On the other hand, the subsidiary's midfielder, Ilaix Moriba, who also debuted as a scorer in the last LaLiga match against Osasuna, along with Arnau Tenas and Óscar Mingueza.

Four players are absent due to injuries: Gerard Piqué, Philippe Coutinho, Sergi Roberto and Ansu Fati.

The complete list of footballers to play this Monday (9pm) against Huesca at the Camp Nou is made up of: Ter Stegen, Neto, Dest, Junior, Lenglet, Araújo, Alba, Umtiti, De Jong, Busquets, Pjanic, Pedri, Riqui Puig, Griezmann, Braithwaite, Dembélé, Messi, Trincao, Tenas, Ilaix and Mingueza.
