Barcelona team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Napoli

:Headline: Barcelona team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Napoli:
Sports Mole rounds up Barcelona's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Saturday's Champions League encounter with Napoli.

Barcelona head into the second leg of their Champions League last-16 tie with Napoli looking to respond from a disappointing effort on the domestic scene.

Having surrendered the La Liga to Real Madrid and suffered an early exit in the Copa del Rey to Athletic Bilbao, the Catalan giants are left to focus on trying to win a sixth Champions League crown.

However, at a time when the aggregate score is locked at 1-1, manager Quique Setien has a number of selection issues to contend with ahead of Saturday's fixture at Camp Nou.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up Barca's injury and suspension news ahead of the clash.


Ousmane Dembele

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

Despite having longer to recover from a hamstring injury which was sustained at the turn of the year, Dembele remains out of contention for this game. However, the Frenchman may be available later this month if Barcelona make further progress.


Samuel Umtiti

Status: Major doubt
Type of injury: Knee
Possible return date: August 8 (vs. Napoli)

Umtiti has not made a first-team outing for Barcelona since June 27 due to knee issues. Although the centre-back has made steady progress with his recovery, it would come as a surprise if the Frenchman features in the starting lineup.


BARCELONA'S SUSPENSION LIST

Sergio Busquets

Length of ban: One match

Having picked up his third yellow card of the competition during the first leg, Busquets will miss Saturday's fixture.


Arturo Vidal

Length of ban: One match

Vidal was sent off during the latter stages in Naples, resulting in his absence from the upcoming contest. The Chile international will be available should Barcelona reach the quarter-finals.
