More than half of the staff has been of drop in the almost four months of campaign that go and from does time is something that concerns a lot to the barcelonismo. Already before beginning the course, Leo Messi fell lesionado in pre-season and lost the first meetings of the culés.

The Argentinian, luckily for all, recovered and has not gone back to feel any annoyance. The rosarino does weeks that is the same differential and spectacular footballer of always and this is something that has benefited a lot to the Barça. Luis Suárez is another of which fell at all more begin the season in Bilbao. The charrúa had to withdraw lesionado against the Athletic in the debut and lost the first days of League.

Net, Jean-Clair Todibo, Ousmane Dembélé and Junior Firpo also suffered injuries in the first compasses of this campaign. Except the one of the Brazilian, the injuries of the Barcelona, besides, were all muscular. The plague of annoyances by muscular subjects began to argue even the physical preparation of the technical body.

Between September, October and November also fell lesionados Nélson Semedo, that has recovered for this crash with the Real Sociedad; Jordi Alba, that fell twice and also is smart to confront in front of the 'txuri-urdin'; Carles Pérez; Sergi Roberto; Samuel Umtiti, a classical between the lesionados; Ansu Fati; Dembélé, again; Junior Firpo again; Luis Suárez, that was was some days; Clément Lenglet; Ivan Rakitic; and, finally, Arthur Melo, that still is of drop with problems in the pubis. At present, with the recoveries of the sides, only the half Brazilian and Dembélé are in the infirmary.

The survivors to the plague of injuries

In total, 15 footballers of the first staff, explaining to Carles and Ansu, have had some physical problem in what it goes of campaign. Therefore, only eight players keep healthy and survive to the plague of injuries that exists. It treats of Frenkie of Jong, Antoine Griezmann, Gerard Hammered, Sergio Busquets, Arturo Vidal, Marc-André ter Stegen, Carles Aleñá and Moussa Wagué.

The Dutch and the French have played it almost all this course and are exhibiting an excellent physical resistance. Busquets has rested more and this could have been key so that it have not had any problem. I hammered and Ter Stegen by his part, keep fit and without injuries, as almost every year. Vidal and especially Wagué and Aleñá, that hardly have had opportunities, have explained less and is more normal that have not had problems.
