Yea...fortunately WC qualifiers are coming up and he won't miss more than 1 La Liga game and 1 CL game. I love the rotations being employed by Martino. This injury could have been a lot severe if Messi was playing 90 minutes every game. Very very fortunate.
Batra is gettin' some playing time too. Montoya should get some too and I like how he's controlling minutes of Xavi, Iniesta, and Cesc.
Bartra's 2 starts after the Masche injury have been excellent. He is earning himself some playing time even when Masche and Puyol are back.
Bartra has been pretty good in the last few starts. I really hope he continues to get playing time. So far, he has proved himself to be a very reliable CB. Will be interesting if he plays against Real.
