Barca loses Alcasser to El Classico

Barcelona striker Paco Alcasser will not be able to take part in upcoming El Paso with Real Madrid next Saturday. He got an injury during the defeat with Deportivo La Coruña (4: 0) and left the field in the 23rd minute. After the meeting it became clear that he had a muscle injury on his left leg, which would take him out of play for about three weeks.

“Paco Alcasser will be absent for about three weeks after receiving a left leg muscular injury in the first half of Camp Nou against Deportivo La Coruña. If everything evolves as planned, the assailant will be ready to play for the Levante meeting on January 7th. In the short term, Alcasser will miss El Classico on December 23 at Santiago Bernabeu, as well as the first match with Spain’s Celta on January 4, “said the club.

This is not particularly good news for coach Ernesto Valverde, who can not use the injured Usman Dembele, as long as Gerard Deulofu and Rafina are finally in question.
