Liga – FC Barcelona – Celta Vigo: Ronald Araujo evacuated by ambulance after a shock to the head

The scene is chilling. And she quickly plunged the Camp Nou into deep silence. Shortly after the hour mark for Barça – Celta Vigo, Ronald Araujo collapsed on the pitch following a head-to-head collision with his team-mate Gavi. On an aerial ball, the central defender hit the head of his young teammate, then returned to his post staggering and grimacing, before collapsing on the ground, when the score was 3-1.

Shortly after, his teammate Eric Garcia and Iago Aspas, the captain of Celta Vigo, gave him first aid, then trainers and an ambulance entered the Camp Nou pitch. The player was then put on a stretcher and evacuated by ambulance to the nearest hospital. He was replaced by Clément Lenglet in the 68th. “Ronald suffers a concussion and has been transferred to hospital for further tests“, Barça announced in a press release. Xavi confirmed that his player is well conscious and that he should simply spend a night under observation, before returning to his home on Wednesday.
