Barcelona’s Brazilian full back Dani Alves (26) will be out of action for the next three weeks due to a torn calf muscle in his right leg. The Brazilian, who initially entered Guardiola’s plans to play in the game against Getafe, suffered an injury during the warm-up to the match and had to be replaced by Maxwell.
Alves, who is one of the most versatile players of Barcelona, will now miss the league games against Atletico and Racing and the first leg of the Champions League game against Stuttgart.
For his part, midfielder Yaya Toure (26) was replaced midway through the second half as a result of a discomfort in his left leg. It seems to be an adductor tear, which will force him to stay away from the pitch for the next ten to fifteen days.
