Barcelona team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Leganes

Sports Mole rounds up Barcelona's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Thursday's Copa del Rey clash with Leganes.

Barcelona will be looking to advance to the quarter-finals of the Copa del Rey when they welcome fellow La Liga side Leganes to Camp Nou on Thursday night.

The Spanish champions booked their spot in the round of 16 courtesy of a 2-1 win over Ibiza on January 22.

Quique Setien's side will enter this match off the back of a defeat, however, having suffered a 2-0 loss at Valencia in La Liga on Saturday afternoon.

No team has won the Copa del Rey on more occasions than Barca, although the Catalan giants lost 2-1 to Valencia in last season's final.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up Barca's latest injury and suspension news ahead of the match.

Ousmane Dembele

Status: Out
Type of injury: Thigh
Possible return date: February 15 (vs. Getafe)

Ousmane Dembele has been on the sidelines since picking up a thigh problem during the Champions League clash with Borussia Dortmund in November. The 22-year-old, who has struggled with injuries throughout his time at Camp Nou, is making good progress in his recovery, though, and should return next month.

Luis Suarez

Status: Out
Type of injury: Knee
Possible return date: Unknown

Luis Suarez underwent an operation earlier this month after damaging the external meniscus on his right knee. The Uruguay international is out for the foreseeable future, although it is thought that he will be available for selection before the end of the 2019-20 campaign.

Status: Major doubt
Type of injury: Ankle
Possible return date: January 30 (vs. Leganes)

Neto, who played the full 90 minutes against Ibiza in the last round of the Copa del Rey, was not involved against Valencia on Saturday afternoon due to an ankle sprain. The club's number two goalkeeper has not been officially ruled out of this match, although the Brazilian faces a fight to prove his fitness.


Barca have no players suspended for the Copa del Rey clash on home soil.
