Gerard Piqué has been discharged from the Vall d’Hebron hospital in Barcelona and told to follow a course of treatment at home after checking himself in due to a persistent stomach virus that prevented him from training and ruled him out of Sunday's game at Las Palmas, FC Barcelona have said. 

While Piqué's condition is not considered to be serious, he took the precaution of undergoing tests at Vall d'Hebron as his condition deteriorated between Wednesday and Friday. The Spain defender has been omitted from Luis Enrique's squad for the match in Las Palmas, the penultimate game of the Liga season, with Barcelona needing to win to keep the pressure on Real Madrid, who are level on points with Barça, but have a game in hand. 

Piqué unable to train since Wednesday with Barcelona

Piqué hadn't been able to train since last Wednesday. He was in Madrid on Monday and Tuesday to watch the Madrid Open Tennis, with Luis Enrique having given the squad a couple of days off. He then returned to Barcelona and did turn up at Barça's training grounds, but complained of feeling "generally unwell". He has been suffering since, and was eventually hospitalised on Saturday.

Barcelona defensive problems for Las Palmas match

With Piqué out, Luis Enrique has potential difficulties at the back, where he's called up Barcelona B player Marlon to the squad. Sergi Roberto (suspended) and Mathieu (injured) are also out meaning Luis Enrique may try a back three with Digne, or play a back four with Busquets.
