Digimagaz.com – In a sudden turn of events, Barcelona has made an official announcement canceling their highly anticipated preseason friendly against Juventus. The match, which was set to take place at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California on Saturday, has been called off after several Barcelona players fell ill.

The cancellation came as a shock to fans and organizers alike, as it was supposed to be the opening fixture of Barcelona’s four-match preseason tour of the United States. The team had been gearing up for the game, training diligently at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum to ensure peak performance.

In a statement released on Saturday, FC Barcelona cited that a significant portion of their squad had contracted viral gastroenteritis, leaving them unable to participate in the match against the Italian club. According to sources, a total of 14 players in the Barca camp have been affected by the illness, leading to the decision to cancel the friendly.

The club expressed regret for any inconvenience caused to fans and assured that all ticket holders would be refunded. Fortunately, Barcelona’s management had the foresight to secure insurance coverage, protecting them from any financial penalties arising from the cancellation.

Despite this setback, Barcelona remains optimistic about their next scheduled match against Arsenal on Wednesday. The club assured fans that they are closely monitoring the situation and are confident that the team will be fit and ready for the upcoming game at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles.

In other news, Barcelona has made a recent signing, bringing in midfielder Oriol Romeu from Girona. The club sealed the deal, which involved midfielder Pablo Torre moving in the opposite direction on a season-long loan, just last Wednesday.
