Tests carried out on Saturday on the first team player Andreas Christensen have shown that he has an injury to his left calf. He is unavailable for selection and his recovery will determine his return.
Security at the back
Andreas Christensen came to Barça last summer on a free transfer from Chelsea and the Danish international has quickly established himself as a regular in Xavi Hernández's starting XI in the centre of the defence.
The defender has only missed one of the last 10 matches in all competitions for Barça and in total he has made 25 appearances in all competitions.
