Ansu Fati entered the 22-player list provided by Ronald Koeman to face Rayo Vallecano. But on Wednesday morning, just before flying to Madrid, the club announced that the forward was leaving. Barça has not revealed, however, how long it will be away from the pitch
Ansu has not recovered from “the discomfort in his right knee”, as specified by the Barça club in a medical statement. Annoyances that already forced Koeman to replace him in the second half of the classic against Madrid. These are physical problems right in the knee that does not have surgery, for which he must have been out for 10 months.

The technician had already warned that the forward entered the list of summoned provisionally. But before traveling to Madrid they had to evaluate the medical extent of these complaints. Koeman did not want to take risks with Ansu.
Turn for Kun Agüero
And in Vallecas, Barça is presented without its most decisive focus in attack, without Dembélé, who has not yet made his debut this season, and without Braithwaite, who continues to be out for which he had to undergo surgery.
It will be, perhaps, the moment for Kun Agüero, making his debut in a starting position, escorted by Memphis, which has suffered a notable decline in performance, and Luuk de Jong. Coutinho and Demir are the other resources Koeman has left to play in Vallecas.
