Luis Suárez couldn't finish the first half of the Levante-Barça, and left injured with visible pain in the right ankle. The next explorations will determine which is the scope of the injury
Bad leg for Luis Suárez. The Uruguayan forward suffered a hard entrance during the first minutes of the Raise-Barça, to the height of the ankle, and this him mermó of face to the following minutes. So much, that saw him limp ostensiblemente and even asked the change to the bench culé. Ernesto Valverde did not doubt and planted in the terrain of game to Carles Pérez before it finalised the first act.
The first diagnostic that carries from the medical services signals that Luis Suárez suffers some "muscular annoyances in the right leg, in the zone of the sóleo", and during the night of this same Saturday, when arriving to Barcelona, will do him new proofs to determine the exact scope of the injury. It fits to remember that the charrúa already suffered this course an injury in the sóleo of the right leg, against the Athletic of Bilbao in the first day of League.
By fault of that injury remained three weeks separated of the terrains of game, and expects that the ailment produced this Saturday against the Raise was not so grave. To relieve to Luis Suárez of the field Valverde chose to Carles Pérez, although Ansu Fati also had heated in the band. The 'Txingurri' altered the drawing of the forward changing sideways to Griezmann -to the one who situated in the right- putting to Carles Pérez in the left and to Messi of false '9'.
In the second time, with 3-1 in the marker in favour of the Raise, Valverde called also to Ansu Fati and happened to play with a 4-2-3-1 with Leo Messi and Griezmann inside and Ansu Fati and Carles Pérez opened in the bands, leaving to Busquets and Of Jong in the centre of the field.
Luis Suárez could lose the Barça-Slavia of the Tuesday
Any of the strategies worked, since the FC Barcelona finish falling goleado of shameful way in the Ciutat of València and breaks like this the series of seven consecutive victories that accumulated. To all this, and going back to Luis Suárez, seems complicated to these heights that the charrúa can be available pars play next Tuesday in front of the Slavia of Prague, in the fourth day of the phase of groups of the Champions League.
It is likely that Valverde bet by Dembélé for said meeting, situating him beside Leo Messi and Antoine Griezmann up. Ansu Fati And Carles Pérez could expect his opportunity again in the bench, as sucedió this Saturday in the Ciutat of València. Play the one who play in attack, in defence or in any position, a thing is clear: the Barça has to improve and his players have to be more constant on the lawn.
