Barcelona team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Granada

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

Barcelona will be looking to bounce back from their three-goal loss to Bayern Munich when they continue their 2021-22 La Liga campaign at home to Granada on Monday night.

The Catalan giants suffered a 3-0 defeat to Bayern in their Champions League group-stage opener on Tuesday night, but Ronald Koeman's side have made an encouraging start to their domestic campaign.

A total of seven points from three matches has left them in seventh spot in the table, and Monday's contest will represent their first game in Spain's top flight since the end of August.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up all of Barcelona's injury and suspension news ahead of their clash with Granada, who have picked up just two points from four matches this term.
