Alves out for three weeks and Touré for 10-15 days


The Getafe win came at a price for the team, with Alves and Toure both out of next weekend’s game with injuries and Pique and Marquez both seeing red cards.

Touré: 10 to 15 days out

Touré’s 100th game for the club ended badly as he came off with a thigh strain and will be out for between 10 and 15 days. The midfielder, who took over at the back after Piqué’s sending off was finally subbed by Marquez.

Red cards

Marquez himself, of course, was unable to finish the game after being sent off himself after bringing down Kepa for Getafe’s penalty, to follow Piqué who saw red for a tough tackle on Mané in the first half.

Both red cards will carry at least a one game suspension and Guardiola will thus have to re-jig his back line for next week’s trip to Atletico Madrid.
