Ronald Araújo spends night in hospital after clash of heads

Barcelona defender Ronald Araújo spent the night under observation at Barcelona Hospital as a precaution after clashing with team-mate Gavi in the club’s 3-1 win over Celta Vigo on Tuesday.

Barca boss Xavi revealed after the match that “Araújo is fine”.

“He is conscious and out of danger. He will spend the night in hospital as a precaution, but if everything goes well he will be at home tomorrow,” Xavi said in quotes picked up by Mundo Deportivo.

“At first we were very worried, fearing that something could happen,” he added.

Araújo had to be evacuated by ambulance in the 62nd minute after a blow to the head from Gavi. The player was admitted to Barcelona Hospital shortly after with a neck brace.
