Jordi Alba is facing another six weeks out after suffering a thigh injury in his right leg according to release from the club. Alba had been training as he worked his way back from a similiar injury in his left leg.
Jordi Alba suffered a muscle injury in the back of his left thigh in training this morning which, according to the Club doctors, will keep him out of action for approximately six weeks.
It's a real blow for the fullback who will miss the first El Clásico match in late October and more of Barca's Champions League campaign. Head coach Gerardo Martino will likely continue to rely on Adriano to fill in for the injured Alba, while keeping his fingers crossed that he avoids any more injuries to his defense.
