The FC Barcelona informed in the last days, after the party against the UD The Palms (1-4), that Javier Mascherano suffers a small injury in the biceps femoral that prevented him contest the meeting in Big Canarian and, for the moment, turns him into serious doubt to play in front of the SD Eibar in the Camp Nou next Sunday 21 May.

It is likely that Luis Enrique decide to reserve for said party to the Argentinian when can explain already with Sergi Roberto and Gerard Hammered, in addition to Umtiti and Jordi Alba. However, it keeps on being an incógnita if Mascherano will be able to be available against the Sportive Alavés in the final of the Glass of the King 2016-17, a crucial party and in which "I Struggle" will not have Sergi Roberto.

The canterano of the Barça will be sanctioned by accumulation of cards, whereas Aleix Vidal neither foresees that it can arrive to time to the party in spite of his fast recovery. In this sense, the presence of Mascherano will be fundamental to cover gaps in the right-handed lane of the defence as long as it was in conditions to have minutes.

Luis Enrique, every time with fewer resources

Of the contrary, Luis Enrique will have to change the tactical diagram or use to some another footballer that can act like "patch" in said position, as for example Lucas Digne or André Gomes, without that any of the two was too accustomed to play in the place.

Still they remain a lot of days of here to 27 May, however, by what is very likely that Mascherano finish arriving to time for the dispute of the final of Glass of the King 2016-17 against the Sportive Alavés. But... It will arrive to his best level?
