Barcelona midfielder to miss away match with Real Sociedad due to reasons

Spanish publication Mundo Deportivo reported that Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong’s participation in the upcoming away match against Real Sociedad is very complicated.

The Dutchman is expected to miss the La Liga match, although he is likely to return for the UEFA Champions League match against Shakhtar Donetsk next week.

In addition, there is also information that another reason for his delayed return is because he is about to become a father and wants to be with his partner when his child is born.

Almost two months without playing It should be noted that de Jong has not played since he was injured against Celta Vigo in a 3-2 win in September, where he was only able to play 36 minutes.

For now, he remains on the periphery during first team training.

The Netherlands international was notably absent from the training session held at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper recently, as a result of which, his inclusion in the squad for the upcoming league fixture against Real Sociedad seems highly doubtful.

It appears that he is still grappling with discomfort stemming from his injury in his right ankle.

As a result, his eagerly anticipated return may be postponed until the Champions League encounter with Shakhtar Donetsk scheduled for next Tuesday.

De Jong’s absence had a notable impact on the fluidity of Barcelona’s game and it showed through in the statistics.

When the Dutchman took the field, he played in his first six league matches, achieving five wins and one draw.

However, due to absence from La Liga matches, Barcelona had to suffer one defeat, two draws and two wins.

Both victories took place with a narrow score of 1-0, in which Sergio Ramos accidentally scored an own goal against Sevilla and Marc Guiu scored an important goal against Athletic Club.

In the Champions League, De Jong played an important role in the 5-0 victory over Royal Antwerp.

On the other hand, without him, Barcelona would have achieved wins against FC Porto and Shakhtar Donetsk, but both matches were resolved with minimal winning margins.
