European competition returns with a clash against Slavia Prague on Wednesday. Barça will face their third game of the group stage in the Czech Republic with kick off set for Wednesday at 9.00pm CEST at the Eden Arena. On Tuesday the Barça coach announced his 20 man squad for the trip:

Sergi Roberto and Samuel Umtiti are missing due to injury with Carles Aleñá and Carles Pérez also missing out.
In the final part of the session on Tuesday at the Ciutat Esportiva Samuel Umtiti picked up a bruised knee and so the French central defender misses the trip to take on Slavia Prague. Sergio Roberto also misses out as he is still recovering himself from a knee injury picked up in the win at the weekend against Eibar in La Liga.
