Barcelona team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Athletic Bilbao

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

Barcelona will seek to build on their pulsating opening La Liga win over Real Sociedad when they travel to Athletic Bilbao in gameweek two of the 2020-21 campaign.

Ronald Koeman's men marched to a 4-2 success over Sociedad during the opening gameweek of the season on Sunday, as Martin Braithwaite (two), Gerard Pique and Sergi Roberto came up with the goals.

Barca's first La Liga game of the post-Lionel Messi era began in ideal fashion, and Koeman's men have fond memories of playing Athletic, having eased to a 4-0 success in April's Copa del Rey final.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up all of Barcelona's latest injury and suspension news ahead of the contest.

Barcelona confirmed last week that Oscar Mingueza had suffered a hamstring injury during Spain's Olympic quarter-final clash with Ivory Coast. He has been pictured in training recently, but the club have not put a timeline on his recovery, and it would be a surprise to see him feature on Saturday.
