Barcelona expected that Vidal five months to recover, reports the Spanish club’s website.

Trainer Luis Enrique feared shortly after the match, which Barcelona 0-6 won, that the injury was very badly. “I hope it’s less serious than it looks, but I fear that it is not easy,” said Enrique. Midfielder Ivan Rakitic saw immediately that it was wrong. “I was nearby and it looked horrible,” said the Croat.

Vidal came in the summer of 2015, about from Sevilla and had the last few weeks a move to Barcelona. At the time that he was against Alaves penalty was the 0-6 position already on the scoreboard. Because Luis Enrique already three times changed had had to Barcelona the match with ten man to finish.

Luis Suarez was the only player who twice scored against Alaves. The first goal he made reference to Vidal, who, during his injury ran from the field. Neymar, Lionel Messi and Rakitic scored once and Alaves defender Alexis worked the ball into his own goal.

Later on Saturday Real Madrid won 1-3 at Osasuna, so the ‘Royal’ leader to stay in the Primera Divison. Real has a point more than Barcelona and still need two matches to catch up.
