Barcelona defender Gerard Pique could be facing a long time out of action after picking up a knee injury in his club's 1-0 defeat to Atletico Madrid.

Ronaldo Koeman, Barcelona's manager, confirmed the knee injury to Pique after the game but did not specify the seriousness as he also expressed worries over Roberto's injury.

Koeman said after the game: "The injuries to Pique and Sergi Roberto are worrying me. We look forward to seeing the results after tomorrow to know how long they will be out for."

Now, Dailymail suggests Pique could be out for six months.

If this is the case, Koeman will be having sleepless nights as Barcelona are already without Ansu Fati and Samuel Umtiti due to injury.

Pique was forced off the field at the Wanda Metropolitano in tears with a potentially serious knee injury after a freak collision with Angel Correa.

Correa fell with his full weight onto his outstretched leg forcing it to bend in an awkward direction.

Barcelona suffered their third defeat of the season as they dropped to 10th in La Liga, nine points behind Atletico in second.

Earlier, Legit.ng reported that Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone earned his first ever win over Barcelona in La Liga on Saturday, November 21, as his team defeated Lionel Messi-led Barca 1-0 at the Wanda Metropolitano stadium.

But that wasn't the only record set last night as a new report on Goal and EN24 show that Barcelona's 1-0 loss to Atletico Madrid means they now have their worst start to a La Liga season since 1991-1992.

Barcelona has only 11 points after eight matches in La Liga and this is their worst start to a league season in close to 30 years. However, the club can still be optimistic to turn their season around as they did during the 1991-1992 where they also had 11 points from eight games.
