Jordi Alba was forced off with a hamstring injury at half-time of Barcelona’s Champions League clash with Slavia Prague on Tuesday.

The left-back came back into the starting XI for the game at the Camp Nou but was replaced by Sergi Roberto at half-time.

Alba has had a few injury problems already this season that have forced him on to the sidelines and may now be set for another spell out.

I’d like to say that if he is ruled out then Junior Firpo will come in, but Ernesto Valverde has preferred to play Nelson Semedo on the left and Sergi Roberto on the right instead recently.
