BARCELONA, Spain (AP) Barcelona will be without Neymar and Jordi Alba for the final month of the season after both were injured during the Copa del Rey final loss to Real Madrid on Wednesday.

Both players will likely miss all five rounds remaining in the Spanish league, further hurting Barcelona's chances of defending its title.

Brazil striker Neymar, and Spain's Alba, should be back fit in time for the World Cup starting on June 12.
