Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde admits Paco Alcacer is struggling.
The striker was handed a rare five minutes for victory over Malaga.
"It is clear that [Alcacer] isn't playing much," said Valverde.
"I thought that today, after the accumulation of matches, he could contribute something for us.
"I cannot play everybody, players have to get used to it, sometimes they play more, and sometimes less."
