Barcelona have been hit with another injury after Jordi Alba was forced off in the first half of the club’s La Liga clash with Getafe on Saturday.

The left-back limped off after 22 minutes with what Barcelona have confirmed is an adductor problem, although the club have not yet confirmed how long we will be out for.

Junior Firpo was the man to replace the Spain international and can expect a run in the first XI if Alba is sidelined for a little while.

Alba’s injury comes ahead of some crucial fixtures at home and abroad for Barcelona.

Next up is a visit from Eibar before away games at Napoli in the Champions League and Real Madrid in La Liga.
