Sports Mole rounds up the latest injury and suspension news for Barcelona ahead of Wednesday’s Champions League semi-final first leg against Liverpool.

Barcelona will look to take a big step towards a first Champions League final since 2015 when they host Liverpool for the first leg of their semi-final tie at the Camp Nou on Wednesday night.

The Spanish giants sealed a fourth La Liga title in the last five seasons with victory over Levante on Saturday, and are now able to turn their full attention to beating last season’s Champions League runners-up over two legs.

It promises to be a thrilling contest between two five-time winners of the competition as Barcelona attempt to knock out English opposition for the second round in a row.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest injury and suspension news for Ernesto Valverde‘s side.
