Koeman to start the kids? How Barcelona could line up against Granada

Ronald Koeman still has numerous injury woes and may be forced to field a young team at Camp Nou on Monday night

Barcelona boss Ronald Koeman still has numerous injury woes as he welcomes Granada to Camp Nou on Monday evening in La Liga.

The Catalan giants have enough problems as it is right now, but their recent injury crisis has left Koeman down to his bare bones.

Gavi and Alejandro Balde are not involved with the B team on Sunday as they are required for first team duties, and with an injury to Jordi Alba there's a good chance that the latter could start on the left-hand side.

Barcelona v Granada - Football tactics and formations

In the middle the inevitable injury suffered by Pedri, who has racked up record minutes in 2021, means he won't be seen for the next three matches.

This adds to longer term concerns around Martin Braithwaite, Ousmane Dembele, Sergio Aguero and Ansu Fati, though the latter two are expected back within the next few weeks.

That means in attack Koeman will have to go with Memphis Depay and Luuk De Jong again, in the absence of any alternatives.
