The defender of Barcelona, Daniel Alves, has recovered from his thigh injury and he is expected to feature for Barcelona in the match against Rayo Vallecano which is going to be played at Estadio Teresa Rivero on Saturday. Alves has not played in the last two matches for Barcelona because of the injury in his left thigh. Alves had discovered that injury while playing in the match against Real Madrid on 7th of October.
Barcelona hasn’t got the services of its regular first team defenders in the last few games. Carlos Puyol has been out of the team due to the elbow injury, while, Gerard Pique hasn’t been playing due to the foot injury. Alves also injured himself in the match against Madrid two weeks back. Because of the absence of these players, Barcelona struggled with its defense in the last few matches. Barca conceded seven goals in its last three matches. So, the return of Alves is definitely great news for the Barcelona camp.
