The 2-1 reverse to Real Madrid at Valencia's Mestalla stadium Wednesday capped a nightmare seven days for Barca, during which they were dumped out of the Champions League by Atletico Madrid and crashed to a shock 1-0 La Liga loss at lowly Granada.With five games of the domestic season remaining, surprise leaders Atletico are top on 82 points, three ahead of second-placed Real, whose game at Real Valladolid has been moved to May 7, and four clear of champions Barca. The injuries were sustained during Wednesday's King's Cup final, with Neymar sidelined for about four weeks and Alba for three to four weeks, leaving them in a race to regain fitness before the end of the season.If they recover within the estimated time frame, they should return for Barca's final La Liga match at home to current league leaders Atletico Madrid May 18, the club added.
