How Suarez's injury might actually be blessing in disguise: 1-minute explainer
Luis picked up an injury during the first league game of the season and he is expected to be out for at least two weeks. Although it poses a problem to the coach, the situation might have more positives than negatives and here's why:
- With Luis Suarez out, Valverde will have to look for new alternatives in attack, meaning that we could see Rafinha or even Barca B's Carles Perez and Able Ruiz feature more.
- Leo Messi is set to return for group training this week and might be available for the Real Betis game, which means that we will have a new attacking trio soon: Dembele-Griezmann-Messi.
- The Uruguayan injury clearly points at one problem: Barca don't have enough options in attack - this might rush Neymar's return from Paris Saint-Germain.
- Considering his recent injuries, Blaugrana are now obliged to look at younger strikers as options to replace Luis.
