Scary images in the middle of a match at Camp Nou: Araujo collapses on the lawn following a header against a header

On an aerial ball, Ronald Araujo hit the head of his young teammate, then returned to his position staggering and grimacing, before collapsing to the ground, when the score was 3-1.

His team-mate Eric Garcia and Celta Vigo captain Iago Aspas gave him first aid, then trainers and an ambulance entered the Camp Nou pitch.

The player was put on a stretcher and evacuated by ambulance. He was replaced by Clément Lenglet in the 68th.

“Ronald Araujo suffers from a concussion and has been transferred to a hospital center to carry out in-depth examinations,” Barça said in a statement.

Araujo, 23, extended his contract at FC Barcelona at the end of April until 2026, with an astronomical release clause set at one billion euros.
