The Danish landsholdsangriber Martin Braithwaite may have been an opening for more playing time in Barcelona's remaining La Liga matches of the year.
One of his angrebskonkurrenter, French Antoine Griezmann, has suffered an injury in Saturday night's 1-0 victory at stamford bridge against Valladolid.
It confirms the Barca coach Quique Setien after the match, according to the news agency dpa.
- He asked to be taken out of the fight, he says.
Griezmann must now be tested for a hamstring in the thigh and could be out in the last matches of the season, writes the news agency.
Braithwaite has scored a single goal since the surprising vinterskifte from Leganes.
But recently he has only got sporadic playing time for the Catalan large groups.
With the victory against Valladolid, where Braithwaite't get on the field, keep the Barcelona the thrill of the Spanish championship intact.
