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

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

Barcelona will be looking to build on their impressive opening-game victory under Ronald Koeman when they take on Celta Vigo at Balaidos on Thursday evening.

The Catalan giants brushed aside Villarreal 4-0 on Sunday to make a positive start to life under Koeman, who was brought in as Quique Setien's successor during the summer.

Teenage forward Ansu Fati scored twice and won a penalty that was converted by Lionel Messi, while Pau Torres put into his own net in the one-sided affair.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up Barca's latest injury and suspension news ahead of their trip to Galicia.

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

Barca will be without the services of Martin Braithwaite in the early stages of the season as the forward picked up a quadriceps injury in a training match after last week's 1-0 win over Elche in the Joan Gamper Trophy.

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

Koeman is expected to be without the services of first-choice goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen for the next two months due to a knee injury. As a result, Neto will continue to deputise between the sticks.

Samuel Umtiti

Status: Major doubt
Type of injury: Knee
Possible return date: October 1 (vs. Celta Vigo)

Samuel Umtiti has not made a first-team outing since the end of June due to knee issues. The centre-back is unlikely to be considered for selection for Thursday's clash with Celta, either.


Barcelona have no players suspended for this first away outing of the campaign.
