But the one of the Portuguese right side is only the last of a total of 16 injuries that there has been this course in the Barça. The first was in pre-season, with Leo Messi of protagonist. The '10' suffered a break in the sóleo of his right leg in his first training of pre-season (5 August) and did not go back until mediated of September.

But the alone Argentinian held three healthy parties and went back to recaer after the crash against the Villarreal. Luckily, the injury was not so grave as it seemed and only lost a meeting more. From this moment, the rosarino has played it all and has gone back to be the leader and saviour of the most needed Barcelona of the last times.

Luis Suárez was the second in lesionarse, also of the sóleo, in the debut suspender belt in Bilbao. The charrúa was out of the terrains of game during a pair of weeks and, since, had played it everything until the commitment against the Slavia of the past Tuesday. This party went back it to him to lose by annoyances, but returned against the Celtic of Vigo when jumping to the field in the second part.

The muscular injuries are being the source of all the problems and Ousmane Dembélé, as it is used to to be usual, also has seen prejudiced. The Frenchman fell in Bilbao in this controversial episode in which it did not do the pertinent medical proofs after finish with annoyances against the 'lions'.

It returned, it played his first party of the season in Eibar and went back to lesionarse, this time of the knee. The same annoyances of always have kept him in the dry dam a pair of meetings and went back against the Celtic.

Net, Arthur, Ansu Fati and Sergi Roberto also have lesionado. The Brazilian goalkeeper was of drop five weeks after having to be operated by a fissure in a bone of the left hand. The ex midfield player of Guild, by his part, hardly lost four days by his small injury. The juvenile and the one of Reus, luckily for them and for the Barça, only were lesionados little more than a week.

Jordi Alba and Nélson Semedo are the only Barcelona that are right now lesionados, but with a stop of selections by in front anybody knows what can happen. The tendency culé this year, besides, invites to be pessimistic in this sense. Ernesto Valverde only expects that all return healthy and that the Spanish side and the luso can return what before his respective injuries.
