Alba injury concern for Barcelona


The Catalan giants travel to the Santiago Bernabeu this weekend looking to add to their six-point lead at the top of the La Liga standings and 11-point gap between themselves and the Galacticos.

However, they may have to do it without Alba and Turan, after a statement on the club’s official website read: "With El Clasico just days away, the FC Barcelona first team continued their preparations for the big game in a morning training session on Wednesday.

“The available first team players were put through the paces on the Tito Vilanova training pitch at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper, while Jordi Alba and Arda Turan undertook specific training routines.”
