Suárez, Cillessen and Arthur out of PSV game

Uruguayan will be sidelined for 2 weeks with a right knee injury; goalkeeper has a small muscle tear to his right leg; and the Brazilian has an adductor strain

Although FC Barcelona will welcome back Ivan Rakitic and Philippe Coutinho for their Champions League game against PSV Eindhoven, three players have been ruled out of the game through injury: Luis Suárez, Jasper Cillessen and Arthur.

The Uruguayan will undergo stem cell treatment on an injury to his right knee, and will be out for two weeks.

Cillessen experienced discomfort in the warmup before the game against Atletico Madrid this past Saturday. Tests carried out this morning have confirmed that he has a small muscle tear in his right leg, and he will be sidelined for between 2-3 weeks.

Arthur has an adductor strain that means he will miss the meeting with the Dutch side.

Also currently out of action with injuries are Sergi Samper, Thomas Vermaelen, Sergi Roberto and Rafinha, who requires surgery.
