The only bad news coming out of Barcelona's series-clinching 3-2 loss to Bayern Munich was the status of Luis Suárez.

The Uruguayan striker, who had a wonderful first half in which he assisted both Barça goals, was surprisingly substituted by Pedro Rodríguez at halftime, which raised a few questions about his condition. At the time, many thought that Luis Enrique just wanted to give minutes to Pedro since the tie was basically over with the then 2-1 lead for the Blaugrana, but now there's a few more info on Luisito.

Suárez sustained a mild hamstring strain during a sprint in the end of the first half. He comunicated the problem to the training staff, who then passed the message to Enrique, who finally decided to preserve Suárez's health with the final two matches of La Liga and the UEFA Champions League Final in mind.

As of right now, Luisito will be listed as doubtful for the next game, against Atlético Madrid on Sunday afternoon. But given the time between the two matches, the feeling is that Suárez will complete his rehab in time and be fully available for selection against Atleti.

We will continue to update this story as more information become available.
