Barcelona team news: Predicted XI vs. PSV Eindhoven

Sports Mole looks at how Barcelona could line up for Wednesday's Champions League Group B clash with PSV Eindhoven.

Barcelona could secure top spot in Champions League Group B when they take on PSV Eindhoven at the Philips Stadion on Wednesday night.

The Spanish giants were the first team to confirm their place in the last 16 of the competition and know that victory would clinch first place with Inter Milan taking on Tottenham Hotspur in the group's other game.

However, Ernesto Valverde's side go into the game winless in their last three matches across all competitions and having been knocked off top spot in La Liga at the weekend.

Here, Sports Mole looks at how Barca could line up for Wednesday's match.



Possible BAR XI vs. PSV

Out: Arthur (adductor), Jasper Cillessen (unspecified), Luis Suarez (knee), Thomas Vermaelen (hamstring), Sergi Roberto (hamstring), Rafinha (knee)
Doubtful: Philippe Coutinho (hamstring)

Barcelona were hit with a double injury blow at the weekend as Sergi Roberto and Rafinha both suffered problems which will rule them out of this match.

Roberto may be sidelined for the remainder of 2018, while Rafinha's ACL injury is likely to keep him out for the rest of the season.

The duo join a growing injury list for Barcelona, who are also missing Luis Suarez, Arthur, Jasper Cillessen and Thomas Vermaelen for the trip to Eindhoven.

The absence of Suarez is likely to see Lionel Messi play in a central role with Ousmane Dembele - the late hero at the weekend - starting out wide and Malcom also being handed an opportunity.

Doubts remain over the fitness of Philippe Coutinho too, but Ivan Rakitic is available to bolster the midfield once again having served a suspension against Atletico Madrid on Saturday.
