The past Monday, Luis Suárez gave positive by Covid-19 in the previous proofs to the party of the clasificatorias sudamericanas for the World-wide of 2022 that the Uruguayan selection played against the Brazilian. When finishing the meeting -that finished with victory of Brazil (0-2)- made new test PCR in which the 'gunman' went back to give positive, something that him descarta definitively for the Athletic of Madrid-FC Barcelona of the next Saturday.

The duel between colchoneros and culés will take place in Wanda Metropolitan to the 21:00 hours (peninsular schedule Spanish), by what Luis Suárez will not arrive to time to happen the sanitary protocol. In this way, the Uruguayan will remain without his expected reunion with the FC Barcelona little more than two months after having desvinculado of the Barcelona club.

Like this the things, Diego Pablo Simeone will have to find a substitute of guarantees for Luis Suárez in the forward, since the Uruguayan is, until the moment, the maximum goleador of the Athletic of Madrid with five so many annotated. Figures that show that, to his 33 years, the 'gunman' is far to renounce to be one of the best arietes of the world.

Diego Pablo Simeone has several possible alternatives in the forward of the Athletic for suplir to Luis Suárez, being Diego Coast the most logical by the factor man by man but also complicated by the injury in the isquiotibiales that drags the Hispanic-Brazilian. Without descartar to a recovered Yannick Carrasco, Ángel Correa outlines like the player with more options to relieve to the ex forward of the FC Barcelona.

Another of the big doubts that generates the absence of Luis Suárez is to know how many parties goes to lose the Uruguayan forward, taking into account that in the weeks to come there will be a very tightened calendar with parties of LaLiga Santander and of the Champions League. By the moment, in addition to the crash against the FC Barcelona, seems complicated that the ex Barcelona arrive to time to measure to the Lokomotiv of Moscow.

An advantage for the FC Barcelona

Taking into account that it wishes him the best to Luis Suárez to level of health, to sportive level his absence will be a big advantage for the FC Barcelona, that will not have to see confronted to one of the forwards more in shape of LaLiga. The group of Ronald Koeman suffers defensive problems often and the fact of not having to the Uruguayan in front will be a relief for the defence culé.
