After many pysical problems, the Brazilian will travel again with the team
The right back Douglas is the big piece of news of Luis Enrique's squad list to face Eibar this Saturday at 6pm (CET). The Brazilian returns to squad after almost 2 months since the last game played; it was on January 13 against Elche in Copa del Rey.
He has only played one Liga game and 3 in Copa del Rey
On January 19, Douglas suffered a hamstring in his left leg and was expected to be 3-4 weeks out. The recovery has been slower than expected, but earlier this month he trained again.
This season, the full-back has only played one Liga match with Barça and 3 in Copa del Rey. Against Eibar, Douglas might have options to play due to the absence of Alves, who was shown red card in the last match and is sanctioned. In addition, Montoya has been suffering some muscular problems.
Other players out of the squad list are: Alba (sanctioned for having been shown 5 yellow cards), Busquets and Vermaelen (injury) and Masip (coach decision). Luis Enrique didn't call Barça B players who have been training with the first team some day this week, Munir, Sandro and Diagne.
Here you have the full squad list:
- Ter Stegen
- Sergi Roberto
- Neymar Jr
- Luis Suárez
