Ernesto Valverde’s side managed to see off Eibar with relative ease as they cruised to a 3-0 victory in La Liga’s early kick-off on Saturday afternoon, with goals coming from Antonie Griezmann, Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez.
As mentioned, Roberto was forced to withdraw from the game straight after the restart and was replaced by Nelson Semedo for the following 45 minutes with an apparent knee injury that the club have confirmed will require further testing.
The 27-year-old did not have the worst of halves for Barcelona either, as he managed to achieve one tackle and two clearances, although his passing was a little wayward as he only completed 71.4% of his 21 attempts (WhoScored).
Naturally, some fans took to Twitter to share their well-wishes towards Roberto, however there were a number of them who appeared to be have been delighted by the news that the Spain international would be facing some time out on the sidelines.
Here are just some of their reactions to his injury setback…
Yaaaayyy! hope he never comes back
