Alves took one shot, whipped in three crosses and assisted on a Lionel Messi goal during Barcelona's 3-0 win over Bayern Munich on Wednesday.

The Brazilian is one of the most accomplished attacking fullbacks in the world, as is evidenced by his running total of 10 assists on the season. Alves is a strong play again this weekend against Real Sociedad at home.

Alves scored a goal in the 90th minute of Barcelona's 2-0 Champions League win at Manchester City on Tuesday.

Alves' goal was a back-breaker against a 10-man City squad, who played the final 35 minutes without Martin Demichelis after he was sent off in the 54th minute. The goal gave Barca a 2-0 aggregate lead, with the second leg to be played at Camp Nou.

Alves was treated Monday for an ankle injury he picked up in Sunday's match against Levante, Football Espana reports.

Alves was able to knock in a goal in the 24th minute of Sunday's match, equaling his Liga total from the last two years combined. The ankle injury doesn't appear to be serious in nature, although Barca has a quick turnaround with a Copa del Rey match against Atletico Madrid on Wednesday. If he's forced to miss that match, he could be ready for their next Liga match on August 25 against Malaga.

Alves has broken his collarbone and will miss the Copa del Rey final against Athletic Bilbao on May 25, the Associated Press reports.

Alves will need surgery and will probably be out for a while after getting injured in practice. Barcelona already had injury issues to its defenders corps, so this certainly won't help.
