Last weekend, FC Barcelona challenged Atlético de Madrid in a new shock in La Liga. And the Blaugranas played their football with a clear victory (3-0). However, one absence had raised questions: that of João Cancelo. The Portuguese international had been unavailable after a mysterious injury. But this Wednesday, the RAC1 makes revelations about this absence.

According to the indiscretions of Catalan radio, João Cancelo was excluded from the match against Atlético on medical advice. Indeed, one of his relatives suffers from a heart problem and the Barça medical staff decided not to take any risks while waiting to know whether or not this disease is hereditary. While waiting to learn more, the former Manchester City player could be left out.
