The FC Barcelona has suffered the bad of the injuries during all the season. From before the arrival of Xavi Hernández to the Barcelona bench, already Ronald Koeman confronted to several irregularities that went accumulating in the infirmary of the club. Now, more in the present, until 22 players have attended at least once to the doctors of the institution, and the absences have been recurrent for the egarense, the one who has had to do 'manoeuvres' with the eleven in reiterated occasions.

However, always there is light at the end of the tunnel, and seems that, although they are few, the good news have arrived to the last training of the club. In the back session to the meeting in front of the Alavés in Mendizorroza, there were two faces known that they had kept moved away of the fields. First, Eric García has gone back to join to the first team after that injury distal in the biceps femoral of the right thigh that suffered in front of the Granada, and whose date estimated of return was of five weeks. Nevertheless, the Spanish has returned 16 days afterwards to train to accelerate, with prudence, his recovery. Still they subtract three weeks.

Another news, a lot of more moving, is the comeback of Moussa Wagué. The Senegalese defender of 23 years there was state yielded in the PAOK of the Superliga of Greece, in where had a horrible injury, a break of the sinew rotuliano and of the ligament crossed back of his right knee.

At present, they are six the drops that has the Sportive City Joan Gamper, being Moussa Wagué, Eric García, Ansu Fati, Samuel Umtiti, Sergi Roberto and Memphis Depay those that appear in the list. The Dutch is the one who is more next to return, after it surpass his muscular problems. Iñaki Crag, goalkeeper of the Barça B, has been section of the trainings with the first team owing to being positive by coronavirus. Another drop, although less sensitive, for the born trainer in Terrassa.

The defence needs them

Eric had had a good rhythm of game beside Ronald Araújo in the saga, but his injury in front of the Granada by League has kept him out of the terrains, and has been Gerard Hammered the one who has taken again the control in the defence. On the other hand, the sides have been the 'heel of Achilles' of the Barça, with a Sergiño Dest without the confidence of the trainer and Dani Alves with 38 years, the one who is not in the plans to future of the institution. It is thus that the recovery of Wagué can contribute an indispensable value in this second half of season for Xavi.
