Tests carried out on Thursday morning have confirmed that Dani Alves has a slight tear of the right leg soleus muscle.  He’ll be out for between 7 and 10 days.

In principle, Alves will miss the games against Granada and Ajax.

The FC Barcelona first team is now missing six players due to injury: Dani Alves: Víctor Valdés, Jordi Alba, Gerard Piqué, Cesc Fàbregas and Leo Messi.  To make matters worse, Xavi Hernández and Cristian Tello are both doubts for Saturday.
