Barça Defender, Jordi Alba To Miss Match Against Eibar

Barça Defender, Jordi Alba To Miss Match Against Eibar 5

Barcelona will play against Eibar without their defender, Jordi Alba.

The left-back was booked for the fifth time this year against Valladoid. That means he’s going to miss out on the match.

The booking was for a tackle with Hervias and left his legs up high, eventually making their way into contact with Hervias’ head. This isn’t great for a few reasons. First off, Alba had been looking a bit better in recent matches. Still not vintage Alba, but certainly better then his early season form.

Depth is also an issue, Barca will be rely heavily on Junior Firpo in the Eibar match given Alba’s absence.
