Barcelona team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Celta Vigo

Sports Mole rounds up Barcelona's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Saturday's La Liga clash with Celta Vigo.

Barcelona will switch their attention back to La Liga this weekend as they prepare to welcome struggling Celta Vigo to Camp Nou.

Ernesto Valverde's side suffered a 3-1 defeat at Levante last time out but remain top of the table, albeit level on points with both second-placed Real Madrid and third-placed Real Sociedad.

Barca were also held to a goalless draw by Slavia Prague in the Champions League on Tuesday night, and the Catalan giants will therefore be determined to return to winning ways when they take on Celta.

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

Luis Suarez

Status: Out
Type of injury: Calf
Possible return date: November 23 (vs. Leganes)

Luis Suarez picked up a calf problem during the first half of Saturday's loss against Levante. The Uruguay international missed out against Slavia on Tuesday night and is set for a three-week spell on the sidelines, meaning that he is unlikely to return until after the upcoming international break.

Jordi Alba

Status: Major doubt
Type of injury: Hamstring
Possible return date: Unknown

Jordi Alba, who has had more than his fair share of injury problems this season, picked up a hamstring strain during Tuesday's clash with Slavia. The Spanish champions have not put a timeframe on the defender's return, although he is a huge doubt to feature against Celta this weekend.


Barca have no suspension issues heading into Saturday's league contest.
