How long is Gerard Piqué out for and what games will he miss?
Gerard Piqué is set to be out of action for three weeks and is likely to miss three LaLiga games, the return fixture with Manchester City and the Catalan Super Cup.
Initial reports say that the injury sustained by Gerard Piqué last night during Barcelona’s convincing 4-0 win over Manchester City will see the centre-back miss up to three weeks of action.

The club ran tests on Piqué’s right ankle on Thursday morning and released a statement explaining the diagnosis: “Gerard Piqué has sprained the external lateral ligament in the right ankle and the estimated time he will be out will be three weeks.” His injury will continue to be assessed as he recovers.
Pique will miss LaLiga and Champions League fixtures
Piqué is certain to miss Barcelona’s next two LaLiga games, against Valencia on October 20th and against Granada on October 29th, and is a serious doubt for a third, a difficult trip to Sevilla on November 6th.
