Barcelona team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Mallorca

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

Barcelona can extend their unbeaten run to six matches in all competitions when they welcome Mallorca to Camp Nou on Saturday night.

A late goal from Lionel Messi helped Ernesto Valverde's side secure a 1-0 win away at Atletico Madrid at the weekend that maintained their narrow lead over Real Madrid at the top of the table.

Mallorca, meanwhile, have lost three of their last four games in the league and they currently sit just above the relegation zone in 17th.

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

Possible return date: December 7 (vs. Mallorca)

Jordi Alba picked up a muscular injury against Slavia Prague last month but he is thought to be close to a first-team return, although he may have to settle for a spot on the bench at the weekend.

Dembele limped off in Barcelona's recent Champions League clash against Borussia Dortmund and while the club are yet to explain the extent of the Frenchman's injury, he could be fit enough for a spot on the bench next weekend.
