Fati out injured? How Barcelona could line up against Bayern Munich

Xavi's Barcelona side will have to be at their very best to overcome serious injury concerns and beat Bayern Munich

Barcelona will have to be at their very best if they are to overcome Bayern Munich and claim a spot in the Last 16 of the Champions League on Wednesday.

Xavi’s side picked up their first defeat under their new manager at the weekend when they lost 1-0 to Betis and injuries to key players make it even less likely that they’ll be able to match their German opponents in this high-profile clash.

Good news for the Catalan side will undoubtedly come in the form of a return to the starting XI for Gerard Pique, who will likely form a back four alongside Ronald Araujo, with Sergino Dest at right back and Jorgi Alba on the left. Marc Andre Ter Stegen will keep his spot in goals.

In midfield, Barca are still without Pedri, so a trio of Sergio Busquets, Frenkie de Jong and Gavi will likely be tasked with getting the best of the Bavarian giants in the middle of the park.

Similarly, Xavi’s side will have to do without Martin Braithwaite, Sergio Aguero and Ansu Fati in attack, so the Spanish manager will likely turn to Memphis Depay to play as a No.9, Ousmane Dembele to take up his spot on the left and young teenager Abdessamad Ezzalzouli to start again on the right.
