Sports Mole rounds up Barcelona's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Tuesday's La Liga clash with Atletico Madrid.

Barcelona will be looking to return to winning ways in Spain's top flight when they welcome Atletico Madrid to the Wanda Metropolitano on Tuesday night.

The Spanish champions were held to a 2-2 draw by Celta Vigo on Saturday afternoon, meaning that they have now drawn two of their last three La Liga fixtures.

Real Madrid will have the chance to return to the summit when they face Espanyol on Sunday evening, placing huge pressure on Barca as they prepare to welcome Diego Simeone's side.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up Barca's latest injury and suspension news ahead of the clash with Atletico, who have been in impressive form since the league's restart.
