Barcelona team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Valencia

Sports Mole rounds up Barcelona's injury and suspension news ahead of Sunday's La Liga clash with Valencia.

Barcelona will be looking to bounce back from successive defeats when they continue their La Liga campaign at home to Valencia on Sunday night.

Ronald Koeman's side lost 3-0 to Benfica in the Champions League before suffering a 2-0 defeat at Atletico Madrid in the league just before the international break.

The Catalan giants have picked up 12 points from seven matches to sit ninth in the table, and the pressure would again be piled on head coach Koeman if the team are unable to pick up a positive result on their return to action here.

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