Araujo was rushed to the hospital after the clash of heads with Gavi.

Barcelona won Celta Vigo 3-1 at Camp Nou on Tuesday night but the celebration was slowed by an ugly incident involving two Barcelona players.

Barcelona defender, Ronald Araujo had to be taken to hospital during the game after a clash of heads with Gavi gave him a concussion.

The Uruguayan spent the night in the hospital before being discharged this afternoon. The tests performed on him proved successful and a club statement revealed he’ll be back in action relatively soon.

Aruajo joined Barcelona from Boston River in 2018. He moved into the first-team at Camp Nou at the beginning of the 2020/21 season and has since become a pillar of their defence, forming a fine relationship with Gerard Pique.

Araujo recently renewed his contract with Barcelona until 2026.

A tough man, he’ll hope to be back in action as soon as possible.
