The Dutch coach, Ronald Koeman, will wait until the end of the team’s training on Saturday, in order to decide whether the player will participate in the match or not.

Bad luck is suffering from Alba during the current season, after he suffered an injury during the confrontation with Bayern Munich in the Champions League, which caused him to be absent for 3 weeks from the team.
