Barcelona have confirmed that Paco Alcacer missed training with gastroenteritis ahead of the club’s trip to Las Palmas on Thursday.

Alcacer was being tipped to feature, particularly with Luis Suarez just a game away from a booking and with Atletico Madrid up next.

It remains to be seen if Alcacer will be fit enough to feature which could disrupt Valverde’s plans for the game.

Barca do have plenty of other options but if Alcacer does miss out it will be a blow for the 24-year-old who has started just twice in 2018 so far.
