FC Barcelona XI vs Eintracht Frankfurt: Confirmed squad news, predicted line-up, latest injury for today’s game

Bundesliga side Frankfurt travel to Camp Nou on Thursday aiming to reach the semi-finals after a 1-1 first-leg draw a week ago, which Ferran Torres saved for the Blaugrana.

Xavi revealed that after that game, captain Pique informed the coach about his struggle with a tendon problem which ruled him out of the Levante win at the weekend. However, he could still come back for this game.

“[Pique] doesn’t have an injury per se,” the coach said. “He’s been in trouble for a few months and is making a Titanic effort.

“In Frankfurt he said ‘enough’. He went out [versus Levante] and we’ll see for Thursday. He wants to force it, we’ll see, but I hope he can.

Memphis Depay and Sergino Dest are pushing to play after respective hamstring issues, and both are on the matchday squad. The return of the American right-back would be particularly useful given that Dani Alves is not registered to play in the Europa League.

Sergio Roberto, Ansu Fati and Samuel Umtiti are long-time absentees for Barcelona, ​​who welcomed Luuk de Jong into the side as he struck the winner at Levante.

Predicts Barcelona XI: Ter Stegen; Araujo, Pique, Lenglet, Alba; Pedri, F. de Jong, Gavi; Dembele, Aubameyang, Torres.
