Gerard Piqué, ruled out playing in Zaragoza

Problems in the Barça defender for Saturday's game at Zaragoza. Piqué will be low.

Nobody panic. The injury that has Gerard Piqué is not important, but by Saturday there is not enough time to recover and so the defense will be low for the match against Zaragoza. By contrast, almost certainly will play and on Tuesday in a new league match, in this case in the Camp Nou against Getafe.

Piqué was replaced in the 74th minute of the match against Milan. He felt discomfort in hamstring and taking into account the numerous cases of muscle injury that has been this season, did not want surprises. Requested the change quickly and lay down on the ground and was replaced by Adriano. After the meeting, the club has announced that the defense was just an overload on the biceps femoris at that time not ruled out for the next game.

With the decline of Piqué, Zaragoza probably Guardiola play with Alves, Puyol, Mascherano and Adriano, while Montoya and Muniesa be on the bench ready to go if the technician so wishes. (via SPORT)
