Barcelona began its journey in the Women's Champions League with a comprehensive victory against Benfica, but with bad news, the injury of Alexia Putellas. Scorer of two goals, the forward had to be substituted at half-time due to discomfort in her left knee. These discomforts have caused him not to train this Thursday and therefore he will be a doubt for the classic against Real Madrid next Sunday at 12:00 p.m.
Putellas started the match, but shortly afterward he began to touch his knee with a painful expression and make several movements to see if he could continue well on the grass. The soccer player tested herself several times but she was not comfortable with her sensations. Her discomfort came from the knee that was operated on and which kept her off the playing fields for many months. Finally, at half-time she was substituted and Patri Guijarro came on in her place.
At the end of the match the player was examined and the possible injury was a scare. The change had been as a precaution and tests over the following days determined there was no serious injury. However, Alexia is not comfortable and she has decided to wait before training again.
Since her return after injury, Alexia Putellas has regained her scoring prominence for both Barça and the Spanish team. With his club he has managed to score five goals in nine games and with Spain he has scored two goals in four games. In total, he scored seven goals in 13 games.
