It is necessary to do review also to the drops by injury. The ones of Ousmane Dembélé, Nélson Semedo and Jordi Alba, all they by muscular problems, already knew in advance. But it calls the attention that again remained out of the list Arthur Melo, that drags problems in the pubis that already prevented him play in the party of the Saturday against the Mallorca. For the Brazilian, there is not date of return still.
