Rafinha was withdrawn just 17 minutes into Barcelona’s s 4-1 victory against Granada after picking up a problem, although the nature of the injury was not confirmed until after the match.
In a statement, Barcelona revealed that the Brazilian midfielder’s “right meniscus” was the cause of the issue, and the 24-year-old is expected to undergo a scan on Tuesday to determine the full extent of the damage.
“Rafinha has suffered an injury to his right meniscus. Further testing to be done,” read a Barcelona statement.
Rafinha has scored seven times in 26 appearances for Barcelona this season, while he has started 14 of the club’s 29 La Liga fixtures.
