Leo Messi, Luis Suárez and Ousmane Dembélé are injured. Today, Antoine Griezmann is the only forward of the first team available
The FC Barcelona is having very bad luck with the injuries in this initial stretch of season. Especially in the forward because, after traspasar to Malcom to the Zenith of St. Petersburg and to yield to Philippe Coutinho to the Bayern of Munich by 'overbooking' of attackers, Ernesto Valverde has seen like three of his four forwards have fallen lesionados.
Leo Messi was the footballer that began with the curse of this start of course since, in the first training that completed with the group, fell lesionado and lost the second turns of pre-season of the Barça, in addition to the first party of League against the AthleticClub . To day of today, follows without training with the group and is doubt to play in front of the Real Betis next Sunday.
The one who sure that it will not be available is Luis Suárez, that lesionó the sóleo in the party that the culés played in Saint Mamés. The FC Barcelona informed of the injury of the Uruguayan forward, but did not specify the time of drop that will cause him said physical problems. It expects that it can be available to play in the Sadar against Osasuna.
The last in falling has been Ousmane Dembélé, that has suffered this Monday a break fibrilar in the biceps femoral of his left leg and that will be in the dry dam during the next five weeks, as it has announced the FC Barcelona in a brief communiqué. The French will not be available until finals of September, possibly to reappear against the Granada.
Chevrons for Antoine Griezmann
With Luis Suárez and Ousmane Dembélé like safe absences to play against the Real Betis and with the doubt about if Leo Messi will recover to time -Ernesto Valverde does not think to risk the most minimum with the crack Argentinian- Antoine Griezmann outlines like the only forward that will arrive to the one hundred by one hundred physically to the duel against the Andalusians.
The French, that had a very grey debut against the Athletic Club, has to take a step forward to lead the Barcelona attack as it has done in the last five seasons in the Athletic of Madrid. Carles Pérez and Rafinha Alcántara could be his companions in the 'trident' offensive to receive to the Betis, as long as Messi do not arrive to time.
