Barcelona left-back Jordi Alba missed the club’s clashes with Sevilla in the UEFA Super Cup and the two matches against Athletic Club in the Spanish Super Cup, as he picked up a leg injury against Roma on Aug 5. He finally returned Sunday against Athletic Bilbao. 

Barcelona are hoping to get their title defence off to the best possible start, so it was wise to hold out Alba.
