Generous Gavi is spotted giving injured Sergino Dest a piggyback to Barcelona’s hotel in Istanbul after his team-mate limped off with thigh injury in win over Galatasaray

Barcelona secured a place in the quarter-finals of the Europa League, with a hard-fought 2-1 win over Turkish giants Galatasaray at the Nef Stadium on Thursday night. 

The victory in Istanbul helped Xavi‘s side seal the Round of 16 tie 2-1 on aggregate, with the Catalans now heading into this weekend’s El Clasico with full of confidence.

Goals from Pedri and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang earned Barca their place in the last-eight, but it came at a cost as two defenders picked up injuries.

Veteran defender Gerard Pique came off with discomfort, which he is believed to have been carrying for a while now, but Dest came off worse.

Diario AS journalist Javi Miguel claimed the 21-year-old has suffered a tear in his left femoral muscle, which will potentially rule him out for the clash against Real Madrid later this week.

After the clash, Dest was spotted on the teammate Gavi’s back returning to the team hotel in the Turkish capital, which left Barcelona fans amused.

It is a blow for the American who was named in Gregg Berhalter’s roster ahead of the World Cup qualifiers against Mexico, Panama and Costa Rica for the United States.

It won’t be of much a concern for Barca given they are most likely to play Dani Alves against Real Madrid on Sunday for the upcoming El Clasico.

As well as playing a starring role on the pitch, Gavi, 17, produced one of it as well it seems

After initial scans on the star, it doesn’t look positive for Xavi and co, with Dest expected to be out for several weeks it seems.

Barca are three places and 15 points behind Carlo Ancelotti’s side in the LaLiga standings going into the clash on Sunday.
