Although it has had some periods of tranquility along the course, the infirmary of the FC Barcelona has been an in passing usual zone in the last months, and every time that goes out a footballer with the high goes in another with physical problems. The last drop took place during the stop of selections, and left out of fight to one of the key pieces of Ernesto Valverde, Ivan Rakitic. 

Several informations situated his period of recovery around the two or three weeks, and after his transfer to the City Condal, the one of Möhlin put hands to the work to take action what before. The fact that his ailment have muscular affectation advises that it go with special caution to avoid relapses, but after some days of rest already thinks in the date of his comeback.

The most optimistic prognoses ensure that the Croat could be smart for the visit culé to the PSV Eindhoven, but as hardly they will have passed 13 days from his mishap, seems something hasty think that the doctors will give him green light. In function of his feelings there will be more news this same week, but the duel against the Villarreal in the Camp Nou seems the first feasible option. It will be hardly four days after the crossing with the Dutch, but would give something more than margin so that there is not any fright.

If the technician decides to do without Rakitic also against the castellonenses, the most likely is that have something more than free time and his return postpone to 8 December against the Espanyol, in the always complicated visit to the RCDE Stadium. In half, the day 5, is the turn of dieciseisavos of Glass of the King against the Cultural Leonese, that seems a good stage in the case that it need to take something of rhythm.

The headlines of the Barça, loomed by the injuries

The carousel of emotions in the City Condal has been important, because in hardly some weeks have gone going and coming some of the indisputable players of the team. The frights in the defence arrived with Samuel Umtiti and Thomas Vermaelen, afterwards touched to look upwards with the injury of Leo Messi, that chained with the one of Philippe Coutinho and now with the one of Ivan Rakitic.

Luckily, the acting theorists have stepped advance and the Barcelona group hardly has resentful of these absences, something that is for checking definitively with the visit to Wanda Metropolitan. In her, in any case, it did not go to be the ex of the Seville because it was expelled against the Real Betis, but all wish that his drop do not notice and that the turn home produce with three points more in the classification.
