Alex Song and Adriano to sit out tonight’s game against Valladolid

alex song is out of the valladolid match

Two of the absences for tonight’s clash between Barca and Valladolid at the José Zorrilla stadium will be Alex Song and Adriano.

Brazilian Adriano is experiencing some discomfort in the adductor muscle of his left leg and will be left out as a precautionary measure. Regarding the Cameroon international Song, the midfielder is suffering from some pain in his left calf and has opted to sit the Valladolid game out and rest.

Therefore the squad for tonight’s league match comprises of the following:

Valdés, Pinto, Dani Alves, Pique, Puyol, Xavi, Villa, Iniesta, Alexis, Messi, Thiago, Dos Santos, Mascherano, Bartra, Sergio Busquets, Pedro, Jordi Alba, Montoya and Tello.

Meanwhile Barcelona midfielder Sergio Busquets is confident that the Catalan club will earn all 3 points tonight against Valladolid and thus be able to dedicate the victory to coach Tito Vilanova, who has had to undergo surgery to remove a tumor in his parotid gland.

“They are three very important points for us, but also very important on a collective level after all we’ve all been through together these last few days. And it’s especially important for Tito who will surely be watching and would help him get better I’m sure,” said Busquets in a press conference before a training session  in the sports city yesterday.

The Catalan defender spoke of the bad news that the team received and that the coach will have to go through the same process he went through just a year earlier. The news also came on the same day that French international and Barca defender Eric Abidal received his medical discharge after battling with cancer and a liver transplant.

I’m sure tonight that Barca will go all out to get all 3 points against Valladolid to show Tito that they are thinking of him and that he makes a speedy recovery.
