Barcelona team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Borussia Dortmund

Sports Mole rounds up Barcelona's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Wednesday's Champions League clash with Borussia Dortmund at the Camp Nou.

Barcelona welcome Borussia Dortmund to Camp Nou in the Champions League on Wednesday night for what will be a decisive game in Group F.

Victory for Ernesto Valverde's men, who drew 0-0 with Slavia Prague in their last European outing, would ensure their status as group winners.

However, they will be wary of the threat carried by an aggressive Dortmund side that came very close to beating Barcelona in the reverse fixture earlier this season.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest injury and suspension news for Barcelona ahead of the game.
