Dani Alves suffered a groin strain in San Mamés / MIGUEL RUIZ - FCB

The win for Barça in San Mamés was not all good news for the blaugranes. Both Dani Alves and Sergio Busquets were substituted during the win against Athletic and on Monday morning the two players underwent medical tests.

In Dani Alves’ case, the results show that the Brazilian has a groin strain. The right was replaced by Sergi Roberto on Sunday after just 19 minutes of the game.

In contrast, the tests performed on Sergio Busquets reveal that midfielder has suffered a slight ankle injury but nothing important. The Barça number ‘5’ was replaced by Marc Bartra in the second half in Bilbao after a collision with Athletic striker Aduriz.
