The FC Barcelona plays much more that a final in The Cartuja this Saturday in front of the Athletic of Bilbao. The blaugrana arrive with spirits to leave backwards the hard defeat in front of the Real Madrid in the Classical and lace negative feelings that drag in the most important parties of the season. Win the Glass of the King would be an extra impulse and the certainty that the doublet (with League) is possible. For this, Ronald Koeman will need to his best effective.
However, it can be having a big problem in the previous of the crash in front of the 'lions'. As it has informed the newspaper 'ACE', Gerard Piqué (that it was summoned for the party in Valdebebas, but did not play neither a minute) continues suffering annoyances in his right knee, in which it suffered a a sprain in the internal lateral ligament.

The true is that the Madrilenian newspaper has published that the central Catalan is not to 100% and that it will have to infiltrate to be able to play this Saturday in front of the Athletic of Bilbao. His presence in the eleven headline is not ensured, but Ronald Koeman sees it like a key player to lead to the blaugrana in the defensive saga, the sector of the field where already has suffered the sufficient in this season.
Like this then , Gerard Piqué will infiltrate the Friday in the afternoon, after the last session of training of the Barça in the Ciutat Esportiva before travelling to Andalucia for the final in front of the Athletic of Bilbao.
