Jordi Alba is a late withdrawal from Barcelona’s trip to Celta Vigo after neck pain ruled the left-back out of the match.

Marca confirms Alba’s absence and the recall of Douglas to the squad in his place, the Brazilian himself only just passed fit.

Douglas had previously been missing since July, when he injured his hamstring in Barcelona’s friendly with Premier League champions Chelsea.

Alba hasn’t appeared for Barcelona since last week’s 1-1 Champions League draw with Roma, also sitting out the weekend win over Levante, when Adriano started in defence and Alba was an unused substitute.
