Rakitic fractured finger against Roma, Barca confirm

Rakitic fractured finger against Roma, Barca confirm”

Ivan Rakitic suffered a fractured finger during Barcelona's Champions League defeat to Roma on Tuesday, the club have confirmed.

Rakitic sustained a fractured metacarpal bone in the first finger of his left hand during Barcelona's stunning 3-0 loss to Roma in the Champions League on Tuesday.

The Croatia worldwide picked up the injury on his left-hand during Tuesday's 3-0 defeat to Roma at the Stadio Olimpico, with tests showing he fractured his metacarpal bone.

"The Croatian will undergo surgery this evening, after which a statement will be issued to explain how the operation went and how long the player is expected to be out of action", Barcelona tweeted. Securing the domestic cup as well as La Liga might make Ernesto Valverde's debut campaign at Camp Nou a success; a season in which Rakitic has played a vital role.

Ernesto Valverde's men now sit 11 points clear at the top of the Spanish Primera Division and are six games away from completing an undefeated march to the title.

Rakitic is nearly certainly expected to miss this weekend's clash with Valencia in the La Liga, but an official timetable is expected to be announced once the surgery is completed.
