Barcelona‘s first match since the end of August will see them take on Bayern Munich in the group stage of the Champions League on Tuesday evening.

The Catalan giants had initially been due to face Sevilla in La Liga on Saturday, but the match was postponed due to a clash with World Cup qualifiers in South America.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up all of Barcelona’s injury and suspension news ahead of their European opener on home soil.
