Barcelona B captain will be 8 weeks sidelined
Bad news for Barcelona B and Gerard Lopez. The team's midfielder Sergi Samper is out for the rest of the season due to an injury on his right leg. Samper won't be available for the next two months so he won't play again this season.
There's plenty of injured players at Barcelona reserves with Ortola, Palencia, Romera and Xemi also injured. Fali won't be eligible against Atletico Balears this weekend because he is suspended so Gerard Lopez will have a nightmare to select his line-up.
Barceloan B is 11th in the table with 45 points, one less than Atletico Balears. However, it looks really difficult for them to reach the fourth place that allows the team to fight for promotion, as they are 13 behind the 4th with only 15 points to play.
