Jordi Alba, the great novelty on the list for the Clásico

Jordi Alba managed to enter 'in extremis' on the list for the game against Real Madrid. With just one workout completed with the group, but after two days with good feelings, the defender received a medical discharge and was included in the call. Since the day of his injury -October 4 during the game against Sevilla at the Camp Nou-, his priority objective has been to return for the Classic and it has already partly achieved it. The next challenge is presented as more complicated, if possible, since both the technicians and the doctors have many reluctance to start this Saturday in the starting eleven. And is that your history of injuries and relapses invites cautionAlthough it is true that in the last Clásico at the Camp Nou, with Ernesto Valverde on the bench, he also came rushing his options after an injury and ended up playing the ninety minutes.

Those who have not yet entered the squad as they are still out are goalkeeper Ter Stegen and defender Samuel Umtiti. Special mention deserves the midfielder Matheus fernandes, who suffered a muscle elongation on September 14 and who has been exercising with the group for more than ten days. Despite that, he has neither been discharged nor has he been presented by the club: a curious case of absolute 'invisibility'.
