Barcelona team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Benfica

:Headline: Barcelona team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Benfica:
Sports Mole rounds up Barcelona's injury and suspension news ahead of Wednesday's Champions League clash with Benfica.
Sports Mole

Barcelona will aim to get off the mark in the Champions League at the second attempt when they do battle with Benfica at the Estadio da Luz in Group E on Wednesday.

The Catalan giants opened their European campaign with a dismal 3-0 home defeat to Bayern Munich two weeks ago - a result which some expected to spell the end of Ronald Koeman's time in the dugout.

However, the Dutchman oversaw a 3-0 success over Levante in Barca's most recent La Liga fixture, but their injury woes continue to mount ahead of this tie.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up all of Barcelona's latest injury and suspension news ahead of the contest.


Sergio Aguero

Status: Out
Type of injury: Calf
Possible return date: Unknown

Sergio Aguero continues to recuperate from a serious calf problem and is expected to remain out for at least another month.


Ousmane Dembele

Status: Out
Type of injury: Knee
Possible return date: Unknown

Ousmane Dembele is on the road to recovery after undergoing knee surgery and could remain in the treatment room until the beginning of November.


Martin Braithwaite

Status: Out
Type of injury: Knee
Possible return date: Unknown

Another long-term absentee in the Barcelona attack, Martin Braithwaite is on the mend following knee surgery and is fighting to make his return to action before 2022.


Jordi Alba

Status: Out
Type of injury: Hamstring
Possible return date: Unknown

Jordi Alba sustained a hamstring injury in the opening Champions League defeat to Bayern Munich and may not be able to make his return before the international break.


Pedri

Status: Major doubt
Type of injury: Thigh
Possible return date: September 29 (vs. Benfica)

Pedri was another casualty of the defeat to Bayern as he pulled up with a thigh problem, but recent reports have claimed that the teenage starlet could be passed fit for Wednesday's game.


Alejandro Balde

Status: Out
Type of injury: Back
Possible return date: Unknown

Alejandro Balde has been nursing a back problem since being forced off against Granada on September 20, and the trip to Benfica is expected to come too soon for him.


Sergi Roberto

Status: Major doubt
Type of injury: Illness
Possible return date: September 29 (vs. Benfica)

Sergi Roberto was ruled out of the Levante win after coming down with gastroenteritis before the game, and it remains to be seen if the versatile Spaniard will recover in time for Wednesday, although he has made the squad.


BARCELONA'S SUSPENSION LIST

Frenkie de Jong returns from a domestic suspension for this game, meaning that Barca have no disciplinary concerns for Wednesday.
