The center-back has some discomfort on his Achilles tendon
Luis Enrique won't be able to count on Jérémy Mathieu to face Bayern Munich this Wednesday on the first leg of Champions League semifinal (8.45pm CEST). The center-back has some discomfort on his right Achilles tendon. It seems then that the center-backs will be Piqué and Mascherano, the usual starters in this position. Bartra will be the only substitute center-back unless Vermaelen is included in the squad list.
Jordi Alba, who did specific work this Monday, trained with normality
Jordi Alba, who did specific work this Monday, participated in the training session with normality and will be able to play against the German team.
The low of Mathieu is the only problem for Luis Enrique. In this morning's training session, Munir el Haddadi, Barça B striker, was also present.
