Ronald Araújo​ was the only canterano to the that Quique Setién allowed to go down with the filial to play the playoffs of promotion to Second Division. The Cantabrian technician justified by the plague of injuries that asola to the FC Barcelona right now and the time has given him the reason. The luck was not of the side barcelonista this past Sunday and the B fell against the Sabadell in the decisive party to go up to the category of silver of the Spanish football.

The blanquiazules surpassed to the Barcelona to go up to Second and leave to all the youngsters without dream. Besides, in case it was not little with this, Araújo had to withdraw lesionado in the minute 75 by an entrance of a player of the Sabadell. Setién Had to throw the hands in command seeing it from his house, since the Uruguayan was beside Gerard Hammered the only central healthy that had the santanderino in these moments.

Javier García Pepper was optimist in press conference with the turn of the defence with the first team. "It suffers a hard hit in the ankle, tomorrow will do him proofs, but expect that next week it can be with the first team", said. These proofs made him before the expected and the Sunday at night the Barça announced that has "a sprain in the right ankle" and that is "slope to do him more proofs to know the real scope of the injury".

These days will go seeing for how much has the one of Rivera, although in 'Sportive World' ensure that the charrúa is not neither much less descartado for the Champions League. The club thinks that could arrive even to play against the Naples and says that if it happens against the napolitanos will be smart with almost total security. The aim, nevertheless, is that it was recovered for 8 August, since Setién could need him with urgency.

Clément Lenglet and Samuel Umtiti are lesionados right now and does not know how go to arrive to the League of Champions. In principle, both would have to be smart, but just in case the ideal is that Araújo recover what before. It will be necessary to be attentive to these additional proofs that have to him do, since they will mark his date of return, that being optimists could be the next week.
